Giorgia Bottinelli at the Castle Museum sent us this image of the etching and map of Burgh Castle that we saw in the museum.

It is clear that the East wall was broken through after at least the late 19th century, given that it is complete in all the art we looked at. Something to ask the archaeologists.

Heritage Open Day 14th Sept 2018

Sue gave us a demo in how to weave using reeds  we’d cut from the site. Everyone had a  go.

Adrian gave a fascinating talk about the finds he’d made at Burgh Castle and other locations in the past. He brought along a photo album containing pictures of Burgh Castle in the hot Summer of 1976, when crops were grown all around the site.
