Enemies at the Gate: Castles and Sieges in the Middle Ages

Friday 6 October
Castle Hill Baptist Church

Buried beneath the crumbling grey walls of England’s castles lie some of the most colourful stories in history – tales of triumph and disaster, courage and cowardice, loyalty and betrayal, ingenuity and stupidity.

Julian Humphrys takes an entertaining yet scholarly look at English castles and how they have been besieged, from the early Middle Ages to the Renaissance.

Julian is the author of numerous books and articles on Britain’s military history, most recently as a contributor to Historic Battlefields in 500 Walks and as editor of the Battlefields Trust’s special publication on the sieges and battles of the Barons’ Wars.
