The Castle Studies Trust is offering grants of up to £10,000 including VAT to support the production of new discrete pieces of research that enhance the understanding and knowledge of castles. Grants will initially focus on new work on castles, such as architectural and geophysical surveys, radio-carbon dating, or projects that enhance the general public’s understanding of castles.
Each project should be for a specific, achievable result that will help advance the field of castle studies. Types of work that can be funded include but are not limited to:
- Site-based survey work.
- Scientific tests on objects or materials from a castle site, such as radio-carbon dating.
- A review of historical sources. (Only as part of a Castle Studies Trust funded project.)
- Reconstruction drawings and other pieces of work that would help public understanding of a castle site.
The fund will cover costs specific to carrying out research and site work, such as travel to and from a castle site, equipment costs, or services provided by a third party. Funding can be used to co-fund large-scale projects.
