CastleXplorer is a site that shows a map of the United Kingdom with a ton of icons you can click to see existing castles and get short descriptions.   Some are not much to look at — just a few ruins — but others are completely restored castles.

The text is for Intermediate English Language Learners, but just  looking at the pictures would help anyone get a better sense of the Middle Ages.  Using the site would be a great opportunity for students to complete a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting some of the castles, too.

I’ve placed the link, which I’ve entitled “Find a Castle,” at the bottom of the Middle Ages section of the World History page.
