Life in a Victorian Prison

We have been finding out all about what life was like in Norwich castle throughout its history.  We discovered that for around 500 years the castle was used as a Gaol and the as a Prison.  We acted in role as Victorian Prisoners carrying out the kind of hard labour activities that would have been common punishments handed out in the castle such as picking oakum and walking the treadwheel.  Can you spot our prison warden making sure that everyone is remaining silent and in self isolation?
