No. 11: John Barber’s Oakham Castle and its archaeology Compiled and edited by Elaine Jones and Robert Ovens Oakham Castle is one of England’s most important Romanesque vernacular buildings, it has been undergoing refurbishment following the award of a £2m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. In the 1950s, John Barber carried out excavations adjacent to the Great Hall of Oakham Castle with the assistance of boys from Oakham School, where he was a master. Circumstances conspired against his being able to produce a detailed excavation report at the time, but he subsequently wrote extensive notes about the Great Hall and the castle site.

No. 12: Oakham Lordshold in 1787: a map and survey of Lord Winchilsea’s Oakham estate Edited by T H McK Clough A very detailed and accurate map of Oakham and four field books in the Finch MSS in the Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester & Rutland give an unparalleled view of the extent and nature of the town in the late 18th century, before enclosure of the parish. The map is fully described and interpreted, and the primary field book is transcribed. The topography of the town and its properties are discussed, as are the people mentioned both in the field books and in the Oakham entry in the Universal British Directory of 1791. The map is the earliest detailed plan known, and can be used to suggest the medieval form of the town, with its church and castle. (A4, 104pp, colour, with index. £10.00 (members £7.50).
