Dr Stuart Jennings, an academic from Warwick University, has used previously unpublished records from Nottinghamshire Archives to write a book about life in Newark-on-Trent during the English Civil War. The book, 'These Uncertain Tymes' - Newark and the civilian experience of the Civil Wars, 1640-1660, describes the many problems and hardships faced by the inhabitants of the town during the three sieges of the town. A full review has been published on the Thoroton Society website:
