Rebuilding the past: Caerphilly Castle

The first in a new series of videos that use CGI technology to restore some of Wales’s most iconic landmarks to their former glory.  This video gives you an idea of how Caerphilly Castle would have looked in the early 1300s when it was able to withstand an attack from 10,000 Welsh rebels.  Make your way through a series of drawbridges, gates and wooden doors to breach the castle to get a sense of the ‘walls within walls’ system of defence that was favoured by Gilbert de Clare, the nobleman responsible for building Caerphilly Castle.
