Day 13 – Seafood Supper

It rained a lot today. Yes, even in July it rains in Ireland. But many soldiered on through the damp morning. Things cleared up in the afternoon and work continued in the flooded cuttings where possible. Large quantities of household waste and remains of seafood suppers were found in the long cutting 3. The were found within what we believe to be the monastic garden.

Some of the IAFS students attended both Tara lecture scheduled for that evening, one by Conor Newman on Tara and the other on Meath in c.1210. The turnout at O’Connors after the lectures was down somewhat, but Geraldine, Will and Nóra flew the flag for the excavation team.
