Castle Construction, Conquest and Compensation

Castle Construction, Conquest and Compensation

A talk by Dr David Roffe, MA, PhD, FRHistS, FSA. 

This talk commemorates the work of Christine Mahany who was the director of Stamford Archaeological Research Committee for many years. Dr Roffe collaborated with Miss Mahany on the important excavation of Stamford Castle from 1972 – 1976 as well as other archaeological projects in the area. His talk explores the role that her work played in a radical reassessment of the castle as an instrument of conquest in England.

Dr Roffe is a medieval historian who was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge and Leicester University. His research interests are many and wide ranging but he is best known for his work on Domesday Book.
