Knights and Castles
Discover more about knights and castles. Learn how coats of arms were used to identify knights and design and create your very own castle.
Our friends at The History Van can't currently deliver events at the museum and so are bringing history to you at home. Their Knights and Castles Newsletter includes coats of arms, shields, medieval illnesses and treatments and plenty of hands on activities to keep children entertained.
You can print out this Oath of Fealty to copy and sign like a real knight.
You can print out these shield templates to design your own coat of arms.
Can you heal the sick using medieval medicine? Try these patient and treatment cards.
If you do not have any recycling materials to make your castle why not draw out
your design and label it.
