The remains of a medieval archway which served as an entrance to the tower at Cardigan Castle has been found during restoration efforts.

Excavation work revealed a possible entrance into the tower of the original castle which dates back to the 1170s.

The 18-month project to uncover the 800-year history of the site has been conducted by NPS Archaeology.

It is part of an £11m renovation scheme which aims to re-open part of the castle site to the public later this year.
