This Easter Ludlow Castle and myself as the resident archaeologist are producing an ‘Archaeological Discovery Week’ here inside the castle.

Archaeology Discovery week starts during the first week of the Easter holidays from Saturday 8th – 16th April. Come along and enjoy this public event to help raise the awareness of the fascinating archaeology of the 11th century monument and the town.

There’s all things archaeological going on inside that you can see and do, and William St John Hope from the Victorian era will be appearing.  Look out for him on the weekends alongside other characters, giving an insight into what was first discovered at the monument on the first excavation in 1903…

If you can’t get there during the week then by all means come along and have yourself a dirty weekend…..it will be great fun!
