Lincoln Castle Visit

  • June 9, 2023

This week, Hartsholme Academy pupils visited Lincoln Castle for their “Crime and Punishment” history topic. Lincoln Castle was built in 1066, almost 1000 years ago,  by William the conqueror and it has witnessed some of the most dramatic events in England’s history; from battles, to prison escapes, there is so much to learn about history inside its walls. The children got to learn about the prison, the most common punishments at the time and even about the life of some of the people that stayed there. It was a very dynamic and hands on learning experience!
