History

Description: Roll up roll up! The University of Nottingham is proud to present a web-based time machine which will take you back to the world of popular entertainment in Victorian Nottingham. This video showcases this major research project, Mapping the Moment which has produced a new website investigating the rich and varied entertainment and social scene in Nottingham in the mid-19th century. Experts on theatre history and geographical information science from the Schools of English Studies and Geography have delved deep into the archives to produce an interactive window-on-the-world of theatre, music and other public events on offer in the town between 1857 and 1867. It will be a unique and invaluable public resource for local historians, researchers, schools and colleges and anyone interested in the social and cultural history of this historic East Midlands town.
