Although there was no historical siege of Arundel Castle in the 15th century, this three-day event will show the importance of artillery in taking a Castle, and as a battle field weapon. Visitors will be able to see skirmishes between the two sides, crafts, costumes and armour of the period. With the tented encampments of Raven Tor Living History Group, The Wessex Medieval Alliance, and The Company of St. Barbara, covering the upper grounds of the Castle, this May Bank Holiday weekend will be filled with the sounds of battle and conflict.
