Location Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh / Designers: Splintr / Fit-Out: Splintr

In 2018, the “Fight for the Castle” exhibition was opened, housed in Edinburgh castle’s 19th century Argyle Tower. The exhibition sits above the Portcullis Gate, where the entrance to the castle has been since prehistory. The exhibition focusses on historic Edinburgh Castle’s many sieges as it changed hands between the Scots and English several times from 1286 to 1356.

Designed for a multi-lingual audience, the story is told using sound, light, images and physical objects. Medieval objects are displayed throughout, ranging from a 14.5kg trebuchet ball to the tiny spherical remains of frozen sparks from the smithy set up in the castle in 1335.

As one might imagine, one of the particular challenges of this particular project was the site logistics. Working alongside Splintr made easy work of that, for sure.
