Exploratory excavations at Clare Castle considered "exciting"

For nine days in the spring of 2013, volunteers joined archaeologists to work on four investigative trenches on the grounds of Clare Castle in Suffolk, England. The result was the discovery of human remains, leading experts to believe that a previously-unknown church existed on the property, possibly before the construction of the castle.

The excavations, which also produced 14th century artifacts and the remains of another chapel built in the 13th century, were the first formal examinations of the Clare Castle grounds.
