As well as the 17th Century toilet, several even older features have been uncovered.
It is belived the loo was built when the castle was used for the Bloody Assizes in 1685 following the Monmouth Rebellion, when Jeffreys sentenced 144 people to be hanged, drawn and quartered.
As part of the Mueum of Somerset Project, an audio-visual gallery will be located in the space where the prisoners were held, conveying the horror of the assizes.
