A series of FREE talks and handling sessions that focuses on current archaeological work. These talks allow professional archaeologists, related specialists and community groups to share their exciting work with us as it is happening and include local, regional, national and international projects. The construction by NET 2 of two new tram lines from the centre of Nottingham to Toton and Clifton has created the opportunity for some of the largest archaeological interventions in Nottingham for many years. Work undertaken by Trent & Peak Archaeology includes large open area excavations of a prehistoric landscape at Clifton and the important medieval priory at Lenton. This talk will discuss some of the findings of the archaeological work so far and what this work means in the context of the city's history. Dr David Strange-Walker and Dr Gareth Davies from Trent and Peak Archaeology After the talk there will also be an opportunity to see some of the finds from the excavations and chat further with the project team.
