Archaeological excavation at Westgate 'Castle'

  • Description

    "This main trench across the east wall of the 'castle' tower revealed the massive thickness of the original walls and some fine courses of masonry on either side of a window. This suggests that the original floor level will be much lower than that currently dug with lots more to be revealed by future excavation. The mass of stone in the rear of the trench is material arising from a previous collapse of the higher ruined wall to the right." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2011.
