Monday Lecture: Castle Bromwich Castle
Archaeological excavations at the motte and bailey, which gives Castle Bromwich its name, took place in 1969-70 before a collector road for the M6 motorway was built through the bailey. The excavations revealed prehistoric and Roman objects and features under the medieval motte and bailey, an undated palisade and ditch under the 12th century motte, a timber gateway into the bailey and medieval buildings within it. The excavation director, Bill Ford, died a few years ago and the excavation has never been written up. Dr Mike Hodder, who worked on the site as a schoolboy, is compiling a report from records and finds in the Birmingham Museum.
