Weekend fun at Arundel Castle: Normans & Crusaders

Jan 31 2016 Set in 1190, Richard Coeur de Lion, King of England has embarked on the Third Crusade and has called upon his subjects to set forth and join him. Arundel Castle guards the road linking the Medieval ports of Shoreham, Pagham, and Portsmouth. The Castle defends access to the sea via the River Arun, providing a logical mustering point for men, supplies and equipment setting out for the Continent.
