Cathedrals to Churches - Medieval Worship Has It All

Medieval history is fascinating. It has a huge following around the world with people interested in all different facets of the period - from medieval knights to medieval castles to medieval food to medieval music to medieval kings and queens and lots more.

Here in Britain we are very fortunate to be surrounded by tangible evidence from the medieval period - buildings that still exist from the Norman Conquest over 900 years ago. The most common of these medieval buildings are medieval castles and places of medieval worship.

Carlisle Cathedral is a great example of a place of medieval worship. It has witnessed many things including the historic occasion of when Robert The Bruce gave his allegiance to King Edward I in 1297 and it figured in the English Civil War and the Jacobite Rebellion.
