(CNN)An archaeologist unexpectedly discovered medieval manuscripts, 16th century clothing and Tudor books among the many artifacts left beneath the floorboards of Oxburgh Hall in Oxborough, England.

The most interesting find was a manuscript from the 15th century, which National Trust curator Anna Forrest believes was part of a portable prayer book that may have belonged to Sir Edmund Bedingfeld, the builder of Oxburgh Hall.

Oxburgh Hall is a moated house that belonged to the Bedingfeld family, and it is now a tourist attraction.

The discoveries were made during a restoration project after major structural problems were discovered on the roof in 2016. Due to the pandemic, archaeologist Matthew Champion worked mostly in isolation.
