Medieval archway found under Cardigan Castle floor

NPS Archaeology, working on an 18-month excavation at Wales' Cardigan Castle, has unearthed a stone archway dating to the 12th century beneath the floor of the castle. The archway is believed to have led to the tower of the original castle.

"Even though it cannot be dated at the moment the entrance is a very exciting discovery as it is a key architectural element of the medieval remains on the site," said NPS Archaeology project manager Nigel Page.
