A previously unknown Anglo-Saxon church which dates back over 1,000 years has been found beneath Lincoln Castle in England.

It is believed the stone church was built in the Anglo-Saxon period, after the Romans left Britain and before the Norman conquest of 1066.

Lincolnshire County Council said the find was unexpected and will increase its knowledge of uphill Lincoln.

Human skeletons were also found in the same area three metres (9.8 ft) below the surface.
