  1. A well written and photographed account.Together with its follow up correspondence its filled a gap and is reflective of the feelings of Sheffield folk about its lost castle.A little sad that the results of this initial and limited excavation are more widely known at national level than locally.Another issue that is one for rueful reflection is that due to austerity cuts that interesting publication-Archaelogy in South Yorkshire is not being published.Will we ever see this excavation reported on in Transactions of the Hunter Archaelogical Society or Archaelogy in South Yorkshire? It seems probably not as the University’s research tome may well cover all the current angles.
