Castles

Along the South coast you can see the remains of castles built to protect the South from foreign raiders and to prevent invasion. Students investigate when, where and why these castles were built. The module ends with a visit to Porchester Castle, helping to bring historical aspects of bygone times to life whilst encouraging pupils to appreciate English Heritage


A tour of the Castle brings all these components to life whilst, the commanding views over Portsmouth Harbour serve to demonstrate the geographic benefits of such a site.
