Discover the palace of a medieval bishop in England

In a small town in the south west of England, a construction team to build a run-to-mill bungalow found an unexpected medieval bishop’s palace.

The team found the foundations of a “substantial” medieval wall, floor and fireplace deposits in the town of Wiveliscombe, a spokesman for the South West Heritage Trust, a charity working to conserve and manage England’s heritage sites, said. (The site has been surveyed by archaeologists from the South West Heritage Trust.)
