Archaeological Discoveries

The archaeologists made some interesting discoveries under the floorboards of former caretaker Mr. Muise’s apartment. A series of foundations laid out according to a different floor plan were found. These may date from the Royal Redoubt, which stood on the site before the prison from 1712 to 1808. It may also have been a vegetable cellar from the prison era. A report of findings will be published soon and will hopefully provide answers.
