A Tale of Two Boroughs: Urbanisation in Nottingham during the Late Medieval period
Speaker: Scott Lomax, Nottingham City Archaeologist
This talk will provide a narrative of the processes of urbanisation in Nottingham during the late medieval period. It will examine some of the factors responsible for significant changes to the town, as well as some of the consequences of such changes upon the morphology of the town and the lives of those who inhabited it. The talk will focus upon the period 1300-1540, although, by way of background, relevant information for the earlier period of 1066-1300 will be presented. The methodology and results of ongoing archaeological and documentary research, including research for Scott’s ongoing PhD, will be discussed.
All are welcome. Booking is not necessary and the entry fee of £5 includes refreshments.
