Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown Clock: Day 9

Welcome to the Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown, where each night, we’ll be sharing an item from the world-class collections in the Castle’s Galleries in the lead up to Christmas.


Welcome to day 9 of the Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown Clock. Tonight, we’re sharing some exciting work from Doctoral Researcher Chris Pickup and the ISAAC team at Nottingham Trent University.

The research, which was carried out in 2017, considers what the Flawford Virgin from the Castle’s famous Nottingham alabaster collection may have looked like when it was first created. The 10 minute video is now available to view in full here.
