Has Henry VII’s actual birthplace been found in Pembroke Castle….?

It seems there is now new evidence at Pembroke Castle to suggest the existence of a late medieval building in which Henry VII may have born on 28th January, 1457. I am not quite sure why it is thought this might be the actual building where Margaret Beaufort gave birth at the age of around 14, and will only be convinced when they find the room where his first nappy was washed! However, any new buildings are an exciting find, and I hope the archaeologists will make wonderful discoveries.
