Archaeological research and reconstruction of the Fiľakovo castle belongs to the most important activities of Castle Museum Fiľakovo.

“We renewed casemates in parts of the old castle, we re-bricked the entrance gate to the lower castle where stones were falling from the arch,” said head of the Museum Viktória Tittonová as quoted by the TASR newswire. She added that a reconstruction of the entrance gate to the upper castle is planned. The works should be done by the end of September.

Archaeologists also found interesting objects during research. The majority of them originated from Perény’s bastion where workers cleaned the original drain.

“We found an earthenware pot from the 14th or 15th century. It was broken but we succeeded in putting it together,” continued Tittonová for TASR. She added that they also found pipes, cannonballs, fragments of tiles, painted glass and silver coins, mostly from the 16th century. The discoveries will become the part of exhibition in Castle Museum Fiľakovo.
