Heritage events at Worksop Library
OUTLAWS AND VILLAINS
Explore our local heritage at June’s heritage talk at Worksop Library on Wednesday 19th June, from 2.00pm to 3.00pm. The talk will be titled Sherwood Forest: Outlaws and Villains. Using the most recent results from the Sherwood Forest Archaeology Project, and years of historical research, Andy Gaunt from Mercian Archaeological Services CIC will take you through the history, archaeology, landscape and people of Sherwood Forest. Learn about the Forest Law, Courts, Foresters and Keepers, the medieval landscape, villages, towns, palaces and people of the forest. Then hear about the outlaws in this captivating talk that really brings the medieval landscape to life.
Tickets for the talk are £3.00 and advanced booking is essential — please call 01623 677200, book at Worksop Library, or go to the What’s On section of the Inspire website to book online www.inspireculture.org.uk.
Home Cooked Heritage
On Wednesday 10th July, from 2.00pm to 3.00pm, Historian and Buildings Archaeologist James Wright is the heritage expert behind recent project ‘Home Cooked Heritage’ and has delved into Nottinghamshire Archives in search of interesting food-related stories. His background makes him ideally suited to reveal how food was prepared and served in earlier times.
Following previous sell-out talks, Worksop Library looks forward to welcoming back the engaging and entertaining James Wright for another fascinating presentation.
