- Bibliography of Nottinghamshire Folk
Plays & Related Customs
The primary focus is on folk plays and Plough Monday customs that
were performed in the county of Nottingham. As the traditions were
strong on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border, I have also included
some material from Derbyshire (as well as other nearby counties).
If a given source covers other traditions, then these are briefly
mentioned as well.
- The East Midlands Archaeological Research Framework
Downloadable documents providing useful reviews
of the archaeology of Nottinghamshire and the other counties in
the East Midlands, from the Palaeolithic to the modern era.
- Knitting Together: the heritage of the East Midlands
The project has been given a grant from the New
Opportunities Fund to develop a website celebrating the history of
the East Midlands knitting industry.
- Trent Valley GeoArchaeology
Trent Valley GeoArchaeology is an interest group
bringing together archaeologists, geologists, aggregate companies,
environmental and statutory bodies working within the Trent valley.
The group aims to promote high quality, multidisciplinary geoarchaeological
research advancing the sustainable use of the valley.
Fascinating and very informative website covering the operation
of the Poor Law and detailing all the workhouses in England, including
those in Nottinghamshire
