Abstract:
North Pennines Archaeology Ltd (NPAL) was invited by English Heritage to undertake an archaeological watching brief at Brough Castle, Church Brough, Cumbria (NGR NY 7916 1404). The work involved a structured watching brief to observe, record and excavate any archaeological horizons or features located within a new drain pipe trench, positioned within the castle moat. This was required as the site is a Scheduled Ancient Monument (no. CU 334), parts of which date back to the 12th century, and as such required Sheduled Monument Consent prior to any works being undertaken. It was considered that there was the possibility that important archaeological remains would be present within the scheme of works, as the drainage pipe was not only located within the moat but also crossed the entranceway to the castle. As Brough Castle sits on top of Veterae Roman fort there was the chance that features or artefacts of both the medieval and Roman periods could survive in the area. The work was carried out between Tuesday 16th October and Friday 26th October 2007, with most of the trench returning nothing of archaeological interest. The only feature of note was a stone construction located just to the east of the present castle gateway. As the depth of the trench at this point prevented access into it, the structure could not be fully identified. The structure comprised either two facing walls with rubble infill, or an arch again in-filled with stone pieces. What was particularly notable about the structure was that although it was observed in the south facing section of the trench, it was not seen in the north facing section, meaning that it did not extend that far. No parallel feature was seen on the western side of the entrance way.
