Picture Activities with Photographs
Studying photographs of buildings today can help us understand what they were like in the past. On this page there are two photographs of Orford castle. Many of the castles mentioned in the book 'The Castles of Suffolk' no longer have any remains visible. Orford castle's keep remains intact, and helps us understand what these buildings were like.
Print out this page and label the photographs to mark features you can see on the pictures.
