Norwich Castle keep is a Romanesque building of international significance with a rich history. Since it was built by the Normans as a royal palace, it has served as Norfolk’s prison and as its main museum. Each of these subsequent uses have left their mark on the building but in ways that are not well understood.
As part of a developing scholarly partnership between the Norfolk Museums Service and UEA, the School of History obtained an AHRC Cultural Engagement grant to produce a catalogue of papers that detail the eighteenth and nineteenth century history of the Castle.
The wealth, range and historical significance of the material the calendar lists is remarkable. While the building is the focus, historians of local government, justice, museums and the history of science will also find materials of interest to them listed there.
