Title:Archaeological monitoring and recording at Barnstaple Castle Devon.
Originator:Steinmetzer, M.
Summary:An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Oakford Archaeology between November 2014 and March 2015 during work at Barnstaple Castle, Devon. The work exposed the earthen core of the Norman Castle mound. No structural features were identified and there was a complete absence of dating evidence. The core material is predominantly soil-based, suggesting that it came from the surrounding motte ditch. The small nature of the works didn’t permit the identification of major periods of construction, and it must therefore be assumed that the core deposits are roughly contemporary.
