Experts used a 3D laser scanner to reveal the fountain's remains
The remains of an Elizabethan fountain have been uncovered by archaeological experts in Warwickshire.

A team from Poland used a 3D laser scanner to reveal the fountain in the gardens at Kenilworth Castle.

The 16th Century fountain was part of a garden created in 1575 by Robert Dudley for Queen Elizabeth I's visit.

John Watkins, of English Heritage, said using this kind of technology would help experts reconstruct the fountain. It should be finished by spring 2007.

He said it was the first time the laser scanner had been used in garden archaeology in the UK.
