Exhibition: Sheffield Castle Through the Ages

This year, a group of second year students from the Department of Archaeology (University of Sheffield) have been tasked by the Friends of Sheffield Castle to devise an excavation strategy for the site of Sheffield Castle. If implemented, their work could throw new light on the Castle’s use and occupation from the  Anglo-Saxon period to 18th century AD. As part of their project, the students will produce an exhibition of their work, and we would like to invite you to this exhibition.

The exhibition will take place on Friday, 12th May between 10.00am-12.30pm in the Arts Tower Lecture Theatre 8. We will officially launch the exhibition at 10.15am with a series of short presentations from each student group. After the presentations, you will have the opportunity to meet the students and discuss their work.
