In the heart of Medieval Sherwood Forest lies the Royal Deer park of Clipstone.
This royal park was the centre of royal hunting and politics in Sherwood Forest from the late 12th to the end of the 14th century.
An excavation of the western boudnary of the palace site was undertaken by Gaunt and Wright with David Budge and Ben Crossley in the summer of 2012.
This uncovered a substantial Medieval boundary ditch which had been detected in the preceeding geophysical survey of the site by Gaunt in 2010.
Results from this excavation will be presented through this site soon.
