YEAR 7 pupils from The Queen’s School in Chester have crossed the border into medieval Wales.
The young historians toured Ruthin Castle, showing a particular interest in the dungeons and the grave of the Grey Lady.
They learnt Welsh folk dancing and traditional crafts such as spinning wool before enjoying a medieval banquet.
Felicity Hudson, 12, of Tattenhall said: “Although it was very wet, it was brilliant and none of us minded the rain. My favourite part was the dungeons because they were really spooky.”
History teacher Lorraine McCale said: “The girls threw themselves into all activities with great enthusiasm. ”
