Day 3 – A Day on the Site, a Night at the Lecture

Our blogging public must have been bitterly disappointed when no blog was posted on Wednesday night. That was another great day on the site when over thirty of us continued to go down in the cuttings. In cutting 2, two sections of walling and a drain were revealed. In the long cutting 3 a charcoal spread was carefully towelled and the disarticulated remains of a young animal was discovered.

A bus collected the IAFS participants and brought them to the lecture on Tara Hill. Margaret Murphy provided a splendid introduction to Medieval Europe in c.1210. It was standing room only at the lecture, the most successful ever in the history of the Tara lecture series. After the lecture some of us went to O’Connells Bar at Skreen and that explains why there was no blog posted on Wednesday.
