Sheffield Castle 1927-2018

As of 2020, the site of the former castle stands empty and remains the focus of long-running debates about the regeneration of the Castlegate district of the city centre. At the heart of the discussion has...

Evidence was found for agricultural activity of late medieval to post-medieval date across the site in the form of field drainage furrows, ditches and drains. The 19th century OS mapping for the area shows that the western side was regarded as marshy ground. This has been substantiated by the sequence of...

Hollis Croft, Sheffield, South Yorkshire. Archaeological Excavation (OASIS ID: wessexar1-309354)

Jenny Crangle, Milica Rajic, Emma Carter & Ashley Tuck
The remains of two well-preserved mid- to late-19th century cementation furnaces were recorded. The refractory chambers ('chests') of the furnaces had been replaced, probably due to an inadequate provision of flues in the original design. Details of the furnaces were recorded, including the stoke hole entrance doors and the arrangement of 'fire bars' upon which fires were set in the underlying ash pits of the furnaces. Metallurgical analysis supported the view that the refractory lining...

Dividing the Land
