The next phase of works aimed at conserving the attraction and making it more accessible will start shortly with archaeologists overseeing the excavation of staircases leading to the depths of the castle’s basements.
It is hoped the bulk of the works will be finished by the time the castle re-opens to the public for the spring and summer season in April.
Plans for the re-opening event on Friday April 6 will be centred around the build-up to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Staff at Swansea Council are busy researching sports that would have been popular during medieval and Victorian times so that a variety of sporting competitions can be re-enacted on the day. Visitors will be invited to take part in the historic sporting activities.
