Archaeological excavation of Area 6B in the
1980's and early 1990's
9 minutes, 22M. Presenter - Ken Stevens; Video - Douglas T Davies
The Friends of Dudley Castle were founded in
July 1989. At that time Area 6B was still being excavated, so a large
number of Friends did voluntary work each weekend, learning the skills
of archaeology from Steve Linnane, the appointed Castle Archaeologist at
the time. This rare footage was taken before the area was re-landscaped
in 1994. It shows the then Chairman to The Friends, Ken Stevens,
speaking about the site.
