More than 45,000 medieval artefacts have been unearthed in Lincolnshire. Excavations at the Crown Estate in Sempringham, between Sleaford and Bourne, involved 10 archaeologists and took almost seven weeks to complete.
They unearthed thousands of artefacts including a tap, belt buckle, animal bell and chalice cover. The items are currently being held and studied at the Lincolnshire Archives. Although not on public display they can be viewed on request.
