The Archaeology of Oakham Castle

Oakham Castle’s great hall is one of the finest surviving examples of domestic Norman architecture in Europe. However, despite several important excavations since the 1950s, very little is known about the rest of the castle. In The Archaeology of Oakham Castle, Mathew Morris discusses the castle’s history and archaeology, particularly focusing on exciting new discoveries made during the recent Heritage Lottery funded restoration of the castle, which are finally starting to unlock the secrets of the castle’s construction, layout and role.
