Archaeology at the Castle

There's a dig going on at the Castle this week, just a trial trench or two as far as I can make out, but they have found some medieval pottery. Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust are doing the dig - which is who I worked for back when I was an archaeologist in Wales many years ago. They're hoping to find a cobbled medieval surface around the castle gate. On Friday, they're looking for people to help them back fill the trenches, so they can keep excavating right through to Thursday evening - I'm tempted to go along for a while, though I'll have to be clean in the afternoon to visit the Spaceguard Observatory with the Dark Skies weekend.
I'm doing a lot of fun things at the moment!
