A 1,000-year-old church has been discovered by archaeologists carrying out a £20 million restoration project at Lincoln Castle.

Experts believe that the church is one of the most important archaeological finds in Britain, as it pre-dates both the castle and the Norman Conquest.

Construction workers have also unearthed eight skeletons in the Norman building, believed to be the remains of powerful and wealthy people.
