“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.”

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. You can also read more about the Castle and see some great photos (if I do say so myself) on this post.
On a fun note, it was great to see my article retweeted by the folks at the Castle!
