Our last school group had a special treat – since the trees were cleared we were able to allow this group into the castle for their tour! They loved it.

Digging and sieving was the highlight for nearly all the school visits – at the end of the day everyone just wanted to get mucky..
Sieving for finds!

On the archaeology front we were able to open a few more small cuttings around the castle.  One of these new cuttings revealed cobbles at the western end of the castle extending right round to its eastern end. So anyone approaching the front door of the castle would have walked over a fine cobbled yard!
