The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) was commissioned by HM Prison
Service to undertake an archaeological watching brief during remedial works to the top floor,
and roof level of the Witches' Tower of Lancaster Castle (SD 47386183), in September and
October 1998. The aim of the watching brief was to record further newly exposed areas of
the timber floor previously recorded by LUAU (LUAU 1996) and to record structural fabric
exposed as a result of the removing of the lead roofing and the unblocking of the upper stair
The works in the upper room revealed further areas of the timber floor which had previously
been recorded during the 1996 phase of works.
