Musket firing, hand to hand combat, and the clatter of swords on shields or the clash of pikes are the familiar sounds of living history days.
Re-enactors do not hold back - aiming to make their battles and restaging of historical events as real as possible.
Framlingham Castle has hosted these events for years and back in 1987 it was the prestigious company of the Sealed Knot which camped at the castle - staging a battle at the gates and then displays on the central green inside.
The society was founded in 1968 and its authentic re-enactments are much-loved by visitors to attractions and history enthusiasts.
Framlingham Castle has been the scene of many significant events over the centuries, including a siege in 1216 when the fortress was successfully taken by King John, and when Mary seized power in 1553 she gathered her forces at the castle before marching on London.
