Church, Market and Social Life: A Perspective from Recent Excavations and Survey at Lenton Priory

Part of a series of FREE talks and handling sessions that allow professional archaeologists, related specialists and community groups to share their exciting work with us as it is happening and include regional, national and international projects.

With Dr Gareth Davies, Head of Operations Trent and Peak Archaeology.

Lenton is today an inner city suburb of Nottingham, but from the early 1100’s it was the site of Lenton Priory, a huge rural ecclesiastical site and community distinctly removed from its nearby urban focus. This talk will discuss the results of the recent archaeological excavations and survey at Lenton Priory.
