Abstract: Although the aims of the Wallingford Burh to Borough Research Project were centred on the early medieval to late medieval townscape, excavation trenches at the castle in particular revealed many traces of post-medieval, Civil War-period activity, notably two likely cannon/ gun emplacement platforms, each signifying extensive logistical operations. These works have partly masked the medieval archaeology but are a very important element of the last phases of use of the castle, with repercussions for its structural fate. This paper outlines the archaeology revealed in the project and finds from earlier interventions.
