Bristol Castle in Minecraft

With help from University of the West of England’s (UWE) History Professor Peter Fleming, Year 5 pupils from St Barnabas CEVC Primary School pieced together the remains and recreated the lost castle in Minecraft, in a new world specially created by digital media expert, Dan Tagg.

NifD film company captured the pupils’ 3D model with accompanying audio set during the 1399 rebellion.

Watch the film and be escorted through the castle and its grounds as defiant Henry Bolingbroke returns to English soil after his banishment by Richard II, to take back what he believes is rightfully his.
