Archaeologists discover three wells in Bratislava Castle

Bratislava Castle is currently the site not just of reconstruction work, but of archaeological research as well, Elena Valovičová from the Parliament Office announced on August 10.

Bratislava Castle is currently the site not just of reconstruction work, but of archaeological research as well, Elena Valovičová from the Parliament Office announced on August 10.

"Research in the courtyard of the Castle Palace is nearing completion, but is still in full swing on the Northern Terrace," Valovičová told the TASR newswire.

Archaeologists have discovered the remains of three wells in the courtyard - one of which is around 11 metres deep. Rubble is still being removed from the other two. The wells probably served as rain-water reservoirs. Apart from the wells, various adjustments to the ground have been uncovered in the courtyard. "The discoveries imply that various activities took place in the courtyard in each epoch - from crafts to construction, transport, supplies and gatherings," said Valovičová. Meanwhile, pieces of original brickwork and pottery have been found on the Northern Terrace. TASR
