As the final layers are peeled from cutting 2 (the cutting with the post pad and the corn drying kiln) a chamfered stone with a glazing bar-hole was found in a pit. This discovery coincided with the arrival on the site of Loreto Guinan, the Heritage Officer of Meath County Council. Large ceramic strap handles were found by Flann and Clive who came to give us a dig out in our next to last day. Oisin and Cormac did some sieving of the last deposits and found a worked flint blade, pottery and animal bones. The last bit of planning is almost completed and the section are well on the way. Other visitors on the site today included James Nugent and his grandson Joel, who also helped with sieving.
In the afternoon, most of the team went on their weekly field trip to Fore Abbey. Today’s trip was led by Kevin O’Brien of the Office of Public Works. Thank you Kevin for sharing your vast knowledge with the team. The remainder of the crew stayed late to finish off the cuttings. Tomorrow is our last day.
