“The Caves of Medieval Nottingham – the documentary evidence” – a talk by Dr. Richard Goddard
May 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Nottingham has been known for its vast system of caves since the Early Middle Ages. Richard’s talk examines Nottingham’s medieval caves using the borough court rolls and
other records held by the Nottinghamshire Archives. These reveal a huge
amount of information about what the caves were used for, who owned
them and their value to their owners. Importantly they reveal the experiences
of everyday living in medieval Nottingham.
