This talk will take place in the Djanogly Theatre at 1pm NOT in the Performing Arts Studio as advertised in the ON Brochure. Places are limited so please book in advance with the Box Office on 0115 846 7777. Dr David Strange-Walker, Trent and Peak Archaeology Since 2010 staff from Trent & Peak Archaeology have been exploring, surveying and visualising Nottingham's 550 man-made sandstone caves. Some of these are well-known fixtures on the tourist trail but most of these hidden gems are little-known, privately owned, and hard to visit. In this talk we will find out how the caves have shaped Nottingham, and how the Nottingham Caves Survey is using the latest technology to bring these caves to a whole new virtual audience. Following the talk David Strange-Walker will demonstrate the surveying equipment in the Museum.
