The archaeologists are back for 2021!

So here we are at Muncaster Castle, ready for another week of archaeological investigation. The 'Romans in Ravenglass' team are not expecting to find any Romans here, but we do hope to look for evidence of the hall attached to the 14th century tower and perhaps evidence of activity pre-dating the tower.

Also, previous excavations found evidence for possible ovens some way from the castle, which are of unknown date. Hopefully these features will be better understood and dated after this week.

 Let's see what happens tomorrow!
