    The essence of this study is for learners to practise and develop their ability to use evidence effectively, specifically the site of a castle.

    The aim of this study is that learners should be able to explain how historians and archaeologists can use the physical fabric of the site and accompanying relevant documents and other source material to understand the purpose of a castle site at specific points in time, and also how this purpose may have changed across a particular timespan.

    The sites specified for this study have been selected in conjunction with English Heritage.

    o 2019 site: Kenilworth Castle

    o 2020 site: Carlisle Castle

    o 2021 site: Stokesay Castle

    o 2022 site: Portchester Castle

    Questions will assess learners’ knowledge of aspects of the history of the castle and the lives of those who lived and worked in it. Questions will also  assess learners’ ability to analyse and evaluate different types of source material (both physical  and documentary including the castle itself) as evidence about the history of the castle.
