National Civil War Trail - includes app store logos


Our collection includes a number of nationally significant Civil War related items that form the core of the National Civil War Centre.

The Civil War related objects include a unique 1646 siege map of Newark on velum, showing both the defenders and attackers earthworks and the layout of the town at this time. There is also a collection of rare and distinctive Newark siege pieces, minted in the castle when the town was under siege for the third time in 1645 – 1646.

There are also a number of important coin hoards found locally along with personal items, swords, cannon and musket balls, along with a notable collection of contemporary documents relating to the period.
