From Saturday 1st February to Friday 28th February a small exhibition on the history of Sheffield Castle will be on display in Sheffield Central Library on Surrey Street. The exhibition is freely accessible, and located in the First Floor stairwell display case; it contains panels, historic maps and some artefacts which were recovered during the most recent excavations at the site (2002).
The exhibition has been created by Jonathan Willmer, as a result of a student placement partnership between FOSC and the University of Sheffield.
The main themes covered are:
1) the first castle c.1100-1266
2) the second castle 1270-1648
3) Mary Queen of Scots
4) Civil War and demolition 1642-49
