AL joins the team that were in their final few hours of digging at Shrewsbury Castle. With only 4 hours to go, there was a real passion in the air to get as much done as possible so we keep this one short and sweet.

AL speaks the always brilliant Nigel Baker to find out what progress was made since the last time we spoke to him. What clues they have found that paints a picture of what life at Shrewsbury Castle was like historically? Items found that wouldn’t raise an eyebrow to the average Joe, have really helped illustrate the lifestyles lived back then.

AL also speaks to the team from University Centre Shrewsbury. Dr Morn Capper tells us about how proud/relieved she is to be out, working on this project, as the pandemic could have made things a lot worse. Ryan talks us through his day sat on a mound of mud, sieving through buckets of dirt for those little finds. We also have a nice message for a member of the team at the end there.

I say this is a conclusion to the Shrewsbury Castle Dig Saga, but Nigel told me that there is a lot of work to be done still to piece all of this together. There is an open invite for the team to come in and talk to us about what they have found – AL
