Dr Tim Pestell is Senior Curator of Archaeology at Norfolk Museums Service and interpretation lead for Norwich Castle: Royal Palace Reborn, a £13.5m project to transform the iconic Norman Keep, one of Europe’s most important medieval castles.

The project, which is well underway, will reinstate the medieval floors and rooms in the Castle Keep so that all visitors will be able to experience a Norman royal palace and its stories. He will explore what visitors can expect when the keep re-opens next year, including a new medieval gallery being created in partnership with the British Museum, and some of the fascinating archaeological discoveries that have been made during the works.

Join us to learn more about this exciting project!
