Sixth Form Historians go to Paris

During the Spring half-term, Upper Sixth Historians enjoyed a three night trip to Paris to visit key sites associated with the Ancien Regime, French Revolution and Napoleonic period.

Guided by Mr McFarland’s expert knowledge of the metro, as well as Mr Spencer’s deer stalker and trench coat, and fuelled by a constant supply of bonbons, we visited iconic landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower as well as fascinating monuments of history such as Les Invalides (where Napoleon’s tomb and horse! are displayed), the Conciergerie (where Marie Antoinette was held prisoner) and the Palace at Versailles (site of the dramatic October Days).

It was a fantastic trip and undoubtedly one of the highlights of everyone’s time at Dauntsey’s.
