CASTLE, REPAIRS AND UPGRADING

View this record on the Archaeology Data Service web site


Description:'[Section Ext 4.2] (iii) An extensive build of breccia blocks forms the greater part of this section, beginning with underpinning of 4.1. At the base of the southernmost part of the build there is a rough batter which becomes a plinth further to the north-west. The build is probably a part of the 17th-century work on the castle, as identified in 3.6(ii) above. The relationship between 4.2(iii) and 3.6(ii) is uncertain, the joint between them being messy. The two builds are sufficiently similar in style and composition to suggest that they are near contemporary' (Blaylock, S.R., 1995, 'Exeter City Wall Survey', 42).
