Site Event/Activity record EEM14888 - 2019: WB - Green Court, Dunster Castle
Archaeological monitoring and recording was carried out by AC Archaeology during repairs by the National Trust to a vaulted brick walkway beneath Green Court. Excavations exposed the top of the brick vaulted passage and associated passage walls, along with an adjacent lightwell. These formed part of the remodelling of the castle carried out by Anthony Salvin in 1868-1872. The works also exposed a probable mid 20th-century phase of repairs and previous phase of external walkway leading to Tenants Hall. The repairs did not expose any features or deposits associated with the castle that predated the 1868-1872 phase of rebuilding.
