Overview

##

This course takes an innovative approach to exploring history, focusing on Lancaster Castle as a microcosm of broader trends. This fascinating location provides a wealth of evidence from the remains of Roman forts to its life as a prison and visitor attraction.

Lancaster Castle played a key role in medieval Anglo-Scottish warfare, was a significant location in the witchcraft trials of the seventeenth century and still has a panopticon, built to minimise warders’ workload in the period of prison reform.

Join us to uncover this castle’s vital role in northern English history over many centuries.

This course is designed for anyone with an interest in castles, the history of the North West of England or British history in general.
