Excitement mounts at new Nottingham archaeological discovery

Trent & Peak Archaeology (part of York Archaeological Trust), have discovered enclosure ditches and square rock cut pits filled with pottery, glass and roof tiles which appear to indicate pottery production took place in very close proximity.

Archaeologists working on the construction of a new creative and digital learning space for Nottingham Trent University and Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies have unearthed the best preserved medieval site seen in Nottingham for 15 years.

Ana Souto, Senior Lecturer in NTU’s School of Architecture Design and the Built Environment, visited the site as she conducts research into the identity and memory of buildings. She heard how digital records of the finds will be kept and that there are plans to incorporate elements of the history of the site into the new building.

Planning a street party? The deadline for applications is soon

She said: “I would like to bring students here because they are studying architecture so, as designers, it is very interesting to see how architecture can bring history in to a new design. Also, very often our students are from outside Nottingham so this gives an opportunity to learn more about the city and its history.”
