We had a good day’s work and the weather was warm and dry. It was just beautiful. More progress was made in bottoming the squares. A lot of pottery came up in all the cuttings. Thursday is field trip day and today we went to Trim Castle and had an excellent tour of Ireland’s largest medieval castle. We also visited the site of Mark Kelly’s recent excavations (for CRDS) in the vicinity of the Cathedral. To finish up, a fashion show/fancy dress was held back on the site of the excavation, organised by Erica Peron and Shannon Pate.

Rachel Barret (Archivist, Archaeological Survey of Ireland) inspects the cuttings at the close of day.
