Bringing history alive through portraiture

Back in August I had the pleasure of visiting Richmond Castle in Yorkshire. 

Richmond Castle is the best-preserved example of an early Norman castle in England. Construction likely started in the 1070s, it was expanded in the 12th, derelict by 1540 and, during the First World War, was used as a prison for conscientious objectors.

What fascinated me most was the way that English Heritage had brought the history of the castle to life through modern portraiture, and written biography, which complemented the portraiture of the time.
