Title: Warwick Castle


1
Warwick Castle
  • By Savana Hatten
  • NCE
  • Mr. Vincent

2
This is a movie I made in Movie Maker.
3
Earls of Warwick
  • The first earl That ever came to Warwick Castle
    was Henry De Newburgh.
  • One of the most famous earls is Richard Neville.
    He was also known as the Kingmaker.
  • The reason he is called the Kingmaker is because
    he put some kings on the throne by winning
    battles determining power.

4
Ghost Tower
  • The Ghost Tower was not a ghost tower until one
    of the Earls was murdered.
  • The Earls name was Sir Fulke Greville. He was
    murdered by one of his servants named Ralph
    Haywood.
  • The two men got in an argument over the amount of
    money the servant would get in his masters will.
  • Haywood drew a knife and stabbed his master then
    when he realized what he did and stabbed himself.
  • 28 days later Sir Fulke Greville died. No matter
    what the doctors did nothing worked.
  • It is said that the ghost still walks around at
    night and scares anyone who goes there.

5
Peacock Garden
  • The Peacock symbolizes wealth and riches so when
    someone had a Peacock Garden it meant that they
    were rich.
  • Peacock Gardens usually have bushes in the shape
    of Peacocks or fountains with stone carved into
    huge peacocks.

6
Pageant Field
  • The Pageant Field was used for any tournaments
    that the Castle might have such as archery or
    horse racing.
  • The Pageant Field has trees on each side. On the
    south-east there is a clump of trees that was
    planted by Prince Albert of Whales and Queen
    Victoria also one for the beginning of a new
    year.

7
The Mill
  • The Mill is the place that makes all the
    electricity for the entire Castle.
  • In the 12th century the Mill was one hundred
    yards away from were it is now.
  • In the 14th century it was remodeled to be made
    of stone.
  • The reason that it was rebuilt out of stone was
    because if they were in a battle and they broke
    the mill they would have a less chance of
    winning.

8
Trebuchet
  • The trebuchet was used if they were invading a
    castle.
  • They would usually set something on fire and
    throw it at the castle.
  • A trebuchet is kind of like a sling shot it was
    used to either to harm someone or knock down
    walls.
