26/01/15 – BARON ORFORD VISITS APPLEFORD

Medieval Knight at Appleford.

At the end of January Mr Caley and the Year 8 pupils were delighted to welcome Baron Orford (Dave Fawcett) to the school. Baron Orford gave a very interesting and informative talk about Medieval weapons from the 13th to the 15th Century. He also talked about the requirements of being a Knight and elements of chivalry which all the pupils found fascinating. Mr Caley said “It was a great opportunity to be able to handle a variety of Medieval weapons and pieces of armour and the pupils had much fun in wearing the different costumes and helmets.”

Thank you very much to Baron Orford for his time and bringing this period of history to life.
