Event Navigation

On Saturday 8th February 2020, 10:00am – 12:30pm, at Lenton Grove, Scott Lomax, Nottingham City Archaeologist will talk about urbanisation in Nottingham during the Late Medieval period

This talk will provide a narrative of the processes of urbanisation in Nottingham during the 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.

The Saturday Local History Seminars are organised by the University of Nottingham’s Department of History and are generally held on the second Saturday of the month at Lenton Grove. They are open to everyone with an interest in local and regional history. Booking is not necessary and the entry fee of £5 covers the cost of attending the seminar together with coffee and biscuits in the interval. The seminars start at 10.00 am and finish at approximately 12.30 pm.

Lenton Grove is most easily accessed via the West Gate (Beeston) on the main University of Nottingham campus. There is roadside parking approximately 100m beyond Lenton Grove, just past the School of Humanities building.
