Nottingham Castle c. 1189-2

“Richard arrived at the siege of Nottingham in a black mood and his first act was to set up an enormous gallows beneath the walls.”
— Richard Coeur de Lion by P. Henderson

Earlier this week I was a guest at Catherine Curzon’s blog. In An American in Nottingham: Writing Robin Hood at Nottingham Castle, I talk about being a tourist vs. researcher and learning about the history of Nottingham Castle. I hope you will stop by Catherine’s blog.

On a fun note, it was great to see my article retweeted by the folks at the Castle!
