      • Tony: Sometimes on Time Team we find the biggest mysteries in the most surprising places and they don't come much bigger or more surprising than this. Because this is Tregruk Castle in South Wales one of the largest medieval castles in the British Isles. And when you get inside hidden in this spooky mist you can see it's absolutely vast, and completely empty. Nobody knows how many buildings were in here, what they were or why it's so big, but all that's about to change. We've got a unique opportunity to launch a full scale attack and paint in this vast blank canvas.

      • Mick: Right Stewart I've noticed you wandering around, have you sorted it out yet?
        Stewart: At first glance you look at it and think, yeah Castle you know ditches, ramparts, walls, typical castle type things, but the more you look at it, the more complicated it gets. It really isn't quite as simple as it seems I don't think.
        Mick: I have to say that's a usual Stewart appraisal, that the site is more complicated than you think.

      • Tony: This is so Time Team, this morning when we started we had no idea what was going on in the middle of this castle but we were pretty confident about the outside, now we are as unsure about the outside as we are about the middle, and I bet you there'll be even more confusion tomorrow.
