Nottingham’s famous man-made caves are a defining feature of the city’s heritage, used for a wide range of functions from tanning workshops and malting kilns, to pub cellars, elite drinking dens and World War II air-raid shelters. Dr Chris King presents a wide range of fascinating archaeological finds from Nottingham’s caves that help us to tell their story and learn more about the everyday life of Nottingham people through the centuries.
