Article - Centenary spur for exhibition (Sheffield)

Thank you Mr Wild for your support us who press for the city to uncover the Sheffield Castle remains (Aug 8).

Several years will pass before we can even contemplate the prospect of action on the castle site, if indeed we see any. These years should not be wasted.

Next year sees the centenary of the Hunter Archaelogical Society, members of which were proactive in the interests of the castle remains when they were uncovered in the late 1920s.

Should not this be a spur for Sheffield Museums to mount an exhibition of castle artifacts?

We have two councillors on the board of Museums Sheffield, perhaps they could press this case?

As I said to the Lord Mayor recently, I’m thinking of having me ashes scattered on the existent remains as an added incentive in case nowt’s been done by the time the Grim Reaper’s felt me collar.
