Battle re-enactor puts students to the sword!

Wed, 4 Oct 2017

On Thursday workshops were given by Kevin Hicks, the renowned historical re-enactor, for the First, Second, Third and Sixth Forms students who witnessed the weapons and tactics used in the Crusades, the Battle of Bosworth, the Great War trenches and the wars against Louis XIV.

A host of gruesome stories and the demonstration of a wide variety of weapons helped to bring into perspective the brutal realities of warfare throughout the ages. Students were appalled but fascinated and well-informed.
