Abstract :
In 1984, English Heritage commissioned Lancaster University Archaeological Unit to make a record of the upstanding fabric of Brougham castle. The Unit's brief included the preparation and enhancement of survey drawings, with an analysis of the fabric, in order to identify where possible the different phases of construction, alteration, ruination and subsequent conservation work. This research was combined with inspection of all earlier office records and photographs of the castle, and any other information which might have a bearing on the study. A documentary history of the castle was also commissioned and a narrative produced to which the phasing of the castle could be linked. Also undertaken were a survey of surrounding earthworks, a study of the geology, a compilation of pictorial and cartographic evidence, a new plan of the castle, and limited excavations within the chapel block. ;
