Abstract:
The 2008 evaluation revealed evidence of what may have been part of the original, pre-Norman defences of the Castle area as well as post-medieval deposits including a mortar construction surface and two phases of brick-built wall. Despite such a small trench the findings are significant in enhancing our understanding of the development of Wisbech castle. Although a 1794 plan of the castle exists, this only shows the castle as it existed at the end of the 18th century, prior to the development of the area in to its current form. The design and layout of the Norman castle, reputedly destroyed during a devastating flood of 1236, is unknown. Therefore the current evaluation adds to our knowledge, even though definite conclusions cannot be drawn.
