Abstract


The results of excavation are presented. The passage is cut into the steep slope on the north side of the castle, with which it has no direct communication, the upper end opening in a small triangular platform of ground between the edge of the slope, the north curtain wall and the north-east tower. Access to this platform was obtained from the castle by a postern, secured with a portcullis and covered by the tower.
