Video necessarily involves large files, which has two immediate consequences:

  • Downloads of video material can be time consuming, and are not practical if you don't have a broadband connection to the internet.
  • They require substantial amounts of storage on our web site, and so we cannot keep many videos there. As more material becomes available, we will have to remove older items, though these may still be available off-line if needed.



Archaeological excavation of Area 6B in the 1980's and early 1990's

Area 6BApproximately 9 minutes, 22M. Presenter - Ken Stevens; Video - Douglas T Davies


The Friends of Dudley Castle were founded in July 1989. At that time Area 6B was still being excavated, so a large number of Friends did voluntary work each weekend, learning the skills of archaeology from Steve Linnane, the appointed Castle Archaeologist at the time. This rare footage was taken before the area was re-landscaped in 1994. It shows the then Chairman to The Friends, Ken Stevens, speaking about the site.
