Medieval Scotland / Knights & Castles / Wallace & Bruce

This exciting period of Scotland's history is examined in a duo of displays either Knights & Castles or Scottish Wars of Independence.  The content of both can be tailored to your individual class needs. 

Knights & Castles looks at life in Medieval Times, the coming of the Normans, feudalism, the reasons for and the construction of castles, the training of knights & foot soldiers, the role of the church, food & dining, hobbies in Medieval times, medicine and more. The display formed part of a national exhibition on the subject at Glasgow's Burrell Collection Museum in 2002/2003.

Our Scottish Wars of Independence display covers all the above plus the turbulent times of William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and dispels the myths still lingering from some blockbuster but inaccurate Hollywood Movies.

Your visitor will be portraying a Medieval Foot Soldier or Knight and will bring lots of re-enactment weaponry, armour, chainmail, costumes and more.  The collection of props has recently had a major revamp with the addition of a whole range of Medieval & Norman Shields handmade by Kathryn plus costumes are constantly being improved.

Knights & Castles can comfortably fit into a morning or afternoon school timetable but it is felt that the Scottish Wars of Independence display requires the longer morning time slot owing to its more detailed nature.
