Greensleaves Medieval Kingdom
Categories No Categories
• Do you know the origins of a military salute?
• What does a Knight wear under his suit of armour?
• How were castles designed to protect their inhabitants?
For the last 35 years Greensleeves has been
proud to offer a morning excursion for Primary Schools which includes a Medieval History
Tour in which we discuss topics like Castles, Knights, Weaponry and Armour, Growing up in
the Middle Ages, Banquets, Tournaments.
The tour incorporates, not only discussion, but also the ability for the children to see the
weapons and armour and immerse themselves in the period. During the tour we frequently
stop for question time and discussion is encouraged. The tour is an ideal introduction to
Medieval History, English studies, and the period in general.
The tour starts at 9:00am and goes through until 12:00 noon, finishing with a meal of Soup
and home baked Manchet Bread followed by Syllabub (Ice cream). The meal, manners and
customs are also explained, a King and Queen are chosen, and some of them will act as the
serving ‘wenches and lackeys’
Bookings are closed for this event.
