As part of the Norwich Castle: Gateway to Medieval England project, which aims to reimagine the castle's keep as it was in its Norman heyday, objects are available for adoption.

Part of the Keep Giving appeal, the Keep Adopting initiative means about 30 objects are available for people to adopt.

Swords, ecclesiastical masterpieces, oyster shell paint palettes and rings are among the items.

Prices to adopt vary. Some can be adopted by just one person or group while others can be adopted by a number of different people
