NEW for 2017
Around 950 years ago, William de Percy, direct ancestor of Ralph Percy, the present Duke of Northumberland, came to England from France.  But was he part of the invading Norman army with William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings in 1066?
 
To try to answer that question the Duke and his Archivist examine the evidence contained in a fascinating 15th century parchment roll from the archives of the castle.  In the exhibition, the visitor can see their discussion and enjoy the rare opportunity to view the actual document for themselves.
