426 drawings ranging from the early twentieth-century to April 1998, many are the records of the excavations carried out during the early twentieth-century. The excavation records include phase/area plans from all of the site and sections with some reconstructive drawings of the features. Pottery profiles and illustrations of artefacts are also represented.

Many plans, sections, details and elevations are for a new museum and caretaker's bungalow, and were made during the early twentieth-century with construction details for the interior and exterior with drainage/sewage information.

A number of drawings relate to boundary changes and access roads for the area around the castle, relating to new housing development plans in the area.

The late twentieth-century saw the production of a topographic survey of the castle and surrounding area and rectified photographic elevations of the interior and exterior of the north, west and south curtain walls were taken.
