Lincoln Castle may hide Roman townhouse

The Lincolnshire County Council is sponsoring the restoration of Lincoln Castle in England. So far, archaeologists have found the remains of the Norman foundations of the castle and a previously-unknown Anglo-Saxon church. They expect to reach the Roman era soon in which they expect to find a Roman townhouse.

Lincoln Castle was constructed on the site of a Roman fort. "We expect we will find a Roman townhouse at about 4m depth below ground level," said archaeologist Cecily Spall.
