Rebuilding Sheffield Castle

There's a castle underneath Sheffield, buried for four hundred years. So why does noone know about it?

Working from previously unexplored archives and making use of exciting new technologies, the Department of Archaeology and the School of Architecture are set to change all that. Together with key players from across the city, they are digging into Sheffield’s hidden history to bring this incredible hidden fortress back to life.

Plans include building a temporary pier structure that will enable members of the public to view ongoing excavation of the Sheffield Castle site, seeing with their own eyes how our archaeologists uncover the secrets of this historic treasure.
