Archaeological Project Services were on hand to see that the removal of built-up silt in the moat didn't disturb the medieval level. Digging revealed a sand like layer of stone, which had been deposited in the moat when the castle was blown-up, some time after the Civil War in 1643.
Bits of pottery, stoneware and bottles were revealed, but not from that period. One or two bottles had the name 'Bolingbroke' on them. Some were from Hundleby. A piece of stoneware had the words, Grimble & Kent, Boston. There was bit of broken pottery with a picture of an engraving of a church, with the words St James, Lou (which is of course Louth, but the rest had been broken off). The Archaeologist remarked that that he didn't expect to find much of anything in the moat, as you don't dig a moat out to chuck stuff back in it.
More details will be added later.
