Car park dig for medieval castle (UK)





Volunteers are helping archaeologists search for signs of a medieval castle thought to be under a village car park.
Researchers believe the castle once stood at the site in Maenclochog at the foot of Pembrokeshire's Preseli Hills.

Villagers are working with professional archaeologists for two weeks in a bid to find out more about the land.

A topographical survey of the site last year suggested the site was probably that of the castle and possibly an earlier Iron Age fortification.

Documentary evidence suggests there was a castle at Maenclochog dating back to the 13th Century.
