This coach trip is designed to complement the "Castles of North Wales" course and will take you on a journey into a past that was vibrant, violent and fascinating.
We will focus on castles and fortifications in North East Wales, so that as many sites as possible can be visited in one day. Flint castle, Denbigh Castle, and at least two other sites will be examined, with the tutor, Gill Rossini, as expert guide.
Gill has lived in Wales and still teaches part time for a Welsh university, so you are assured a detailed and exciting journey into the history of these magnificant fortresses, and their impact on the Welsh people. Their structure, the history behind their existence, daily life, and more will be outlined.
You will need to bring a packed lunch and dress appropriately for visits to historic monuments - and for the Welsh weather!
