Sunday February the 19th was the final day of excavation during the initial phase of the Cresswell Pele Tower Project. We marked the day with an open day, where members ofthe public would be able to see what we have been up to, have guided tours of the excavation trenches, see some of the finds and find out more about the project and where we hope to go next.

We had expected some interest on the day however, we were almost unprepared for the staggering turnout on the day.

The video here gives you an impression.
