Lorna Lacey took photographs of the finds from the excavation, here is a sample.

Animal bones washed and set out to dry.

Stone molding.

Spout from a medieval jug.

Medieval pottery typical of the ware found at Bective Abbey.

Decorated medieval pot sherd.

Floor tile.

Floor tile showing a griffin rampant. This motif seems to be new to Ireland.

Badly degraded silver coin from the curved tower in Cutting J (top). This is probably a silver penny of Henry III (1247–72) like this well preserved example from England (bottom).

A sherd of medieval French pottery.
