Abstract:
An excavation was undertaken at Windsor Castle as part of the Time Team Big Royal Dig in the area of the Lower Ward in August 2006. The main aim of the dig was to attempt to ascertain the precise location and orientation of the 12th - 13th Century Great Hall built in the reign of Henry II, but was demolished in 15th Century. In total six trenches were excavated in and around the courthyard area just north of St Georges Chapel. As well as uncovering the 16th century red brick foundations of the former Denton's Commons, five of the trenches also exposed evidence of early walls, whose core fabric was chalk fragments with occasional fragments of Reigate Stone. This fabric type is consistent with the known fabric type of other 12th - 13th century walls already uncovered during earlier excavations.
