Published on May 15th, 2017 | by admin0
The castle we have discovered has been known only from medieval documents, because the area where the ruins are located is on the military training ground used until the 1990s” – told PAP Dr. Pawe? Konczewski from the Department of Anthropology of Wroc?aw University of Environmental and Life Sciences. His research is the first comprehensive science project on the history of this place.
The castle was not a very impressive structure. On the basis of the discovered fragments, Konczewski assumes that it was a single tower erected on a rectangular plan. Its foundation was made of bog iron. The structure was partly made up of characteristic finger-marked bricks – their name comes from traces of craftsmen’s fingers who had removed excess clay while making bricks.
