Newcastle Castle

Earth has had a fabulous day at Newcastle Castle. They were greeted by an Anglo-Saxon at the gates and he told them all about how they lived whilst looking at ancient artefacts. We explored an Anglo-Saxon burial and re-enacted a battle. This afternoon, we have participated in a guided tour around the keep where we were able to explore dungeons. To finish the day, we had a trial for Mrs Pyle which Earth decided to find her guilty and climbed 99 steps to the top of the keep to see the views!
