Alongside the fieldwork projects and mapping work, the Sherwood Forest Archaeology Project also researches the history and heritage of Sherwood Forest.
Ongoing research is looking at telling the story of the administration, landscape and people of Medieval Sherwood Forest from the vast amount of documentary sources that exist including:
the Inquisitions Post Mortem,
Nottingham’s Medieval Borough Records,
Transactions of the Thoroton Society.
Please see the Stories from the Forest page to look at some of the output of this research:
There are stories about Misbehaving Priests, Journeys through the Landscape and information about sites in the Forest from Churches and abbeys, Market Crosses, Chantry Chapels and Saxon Battles to Viking Meeting Sites.
The page aims to be the output for the project and to be the largest resource on Sherwood Forest Heritage, Archaeology and History on the web.
