May 14th and 15th 2016 Sherwood Pines, Nottinghamshire.
The County of Nottinghamshire has existed in the record since 1016 when it was first recorded in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle as a territorial division. Its creation dates from the time of the Danelaw and the Danish Viking King Canute who was crowned King of England in the same year of 1016.
In 1000 years the history of Nottinghamshire has reflected many major historical events; the Vikings, the Norman Invasion, King John and the Magna Carta, the Plantagenet Kings, the War of the Roses, the Pilgrim Fathers, the Civil War, the Industrial Revolution, and the Reformist movement. All this, and much more, happened alongside the ongoing creation of new communities and a broadening of our society.
To celebrate our joint history on Nottinghamshire's 1000th anniversary we would like to invite all our communities to mark their place in that story and record their part in a new public record of our heritage.
We are encouraging people to post memories of significant people, places and events that have connections with Nottinghamshire. These events can have happened anytime in the last 1000 years. We would then like to make a timeline, with an event for every day of the year. 365 reasons to celebrate our Nottinghamshire heritage and create a resource for anyone to use.
To achieve these goals we need funding. We'll do that. But we need as much support as possible. The more posts we get, and the more 'likes' for the page, the more evidence we will have to show funders.
We know how much knowledge you have, and we believe in people driving their own heritage and cultural development.
Nottinghamshire 1000 is a group of organisations that have joined together to help celebrate the 1000th anniversary of this great shire. The Sherwood Forest Trust, Mercian Archaeological Services CIC, The Friends of Thynghowe and Mickie Bradley, guardian and owner of King John's Palace, and Stuart Reddish Public Information Research Organisation (PIRO).
