The two-week archaeological dig at Shrewsbury Castle has made "hugely important" discoveries, historians have said.Copyright: Shropshire Council
The excavation started on 22 July in a project involving Shropshire Council and University Centre Shrewsbury.
They said they made two key finds, the first being an enormous, 12m (39ft) wide defensive ditch around the 11th Century motte.
Two arrows heads were also discovered which could pierce armour and which the archaeologists said were the first military finds from the castle showing its "bloody past".Copyright: Shropshire Council

The huge Talisman machines once carried loads in excess of 100 tonnes, including parts for the Titanic, although just five were made - and only one remains.
After a six-year project, sponsored by Shrewsbury-based Morris Lubricants, a Talisman has built from the ground up in Cumbria.
The public will get to see it from this weekend when it gets its first unveiling at Shrewsbury Steam Rally.

A plaque in her memory was unveiled as the area was officially opened.

For many teenagers in the West Midlands, it's been a stressful start to the day as envelopes were ripped open to reveal GCSE results.
For two students in Shropshire, that stress was probably bumped up even higher as they opened them live on the BBC News Channel.Copyright: BBC
BBC News Education correspondent Frankie McCamley went back to her old school, Lakelands Academy, Ellesmere, to speak to two pupils, Alden and Callum.
Both revealed better grades than they'd expected with Alden saying he was "very happy, surprised" as he didn't think he'd done well in English.Copyright: BBC
While Callum (above), who admitted he was "always struggling" with English, was overjoyed to pass in the subject and it all meant he could go on to do the A Levels he wanted.
Nationally, there has been a slight increase in the GCSE pass rate and the percentage of top grades this year, despite numerous concerns about the difficulty of exams.
