Oystermouth Castle finds

The Oystermouth Castle community excavation is now in full swing. In Trench 1, at the front of the castle, more of the base of the tower and the ditch has been revealed and investigated. While at the rear of the castle two new trenches have been opened in an area thought to be where the castle bailey was located.
The most noteworthy finds so far have all come from Trench 1, these been a handful of Victorian coins and more impressively a medieval crossbow bolt. All of these came to light thanks to the RGC sieve grader that the Trust bought earlier in the year.
