73. LIONS OF THE NORTH: THE PERCYS AND ALNWICK CASTLE

THE HISTORIC HOUSES LECTURE

Generously sponsored by

The 12th Duke of Northumberland is uniquely placed to provide a fascinating account of the Percy family and Alnwick Castle over a thousand years of British history. Generations of the Percy dynasty played vital parts in great historical events, from the Norman Conquest to the two World Wars, while the castle, once battered by marauding armies, is now a major tourist attraction.
