The visit ‘Between the Dead and the Living – Archaeology at the Moorish Castle’ will unveil traces of the lives and deaths of the successive populations who lived on the hill where the Moorish Castle is located. Guided by the archaeologist who led the recent excavations, which have given us a more in-depth understanding of the monument’s history, the visit will explore the challenges arising during the excavations, the exciting discoveries made, the surprises that occurred and the new information we now know about the castle.
