Cardiff Castle re-moated

After ceremonies to mark the conclusion of Bute Park's restoration, the waterworks were opened and Cardiff Castle's moat was filled for the first time in 30 years. During the restoration, the moat was excavated by archaeologists, revealing more than 3,000 items dating back to the 16th century.

The Welsh castle's waterway once supplied a corn mill. Artifacts discovered during the excavation include a leather sword sheath, Venetian glass, a pewter spoon and a clay tobacco pipe.
