Fascinating Finds From Nottingham's Caves: Places of Work and Play

About

Thursdays - Sundays from 12th January - 7th July | 2024 | 12noon - 4pm
University of Nottingham Museum
Free Admission

Nottingham is famous for its hundreds of caves which lie underneath the city's historic centre, carved into the sandstone rock, some going back to the medieval period.

This exhibition highlights some of the fascinating Nottingham cave finds, showing the ways in which caves were used for work – as places for tanning leather, brewing, and storing ale, or craft-working – and as places of leisure, with impressive caves found underneath many of the city's famous pubs, inns, and townhouses where people gathered to drink, eat and enjoy themselves.

This exhibition is curated by Dr Chris King and Dr Charlotte May (Department of Classics and Archaeology) and brings together collections from across the city of Nottingham as part of the University's City of Caves project (caves@nottingham.ac.uk).

Closed Monday-Wednesday
