N22 Tralee Bypass Archaeology Seminar
A free public seminar highlighting the results of archaeological investigations on the Tralee Bypass will be held at the Kerry County Museum, Tralee, on Saturday 25 January. Archaeological works on the N22 Tralee Bypass started in August 2010 with a series of investigation surveys and test excavations. In 2011, 37 sites ranging in date from the Late Mesolithic/Early Neolithic period (c. 5500–3500 BC) to the post-medieval period (AD 1550–1700) were excavated by two archaeological consultancies, namely Rubicon Heritage Ltd and Irish Archaeological Consultancy Ltd. These discoveries, which include evidence of settlement, industry, ceremonial and funeral activities, make a significant contribution to the archaeological record of the Tralee area, but also to County Kerry as a whole.
Date & time: Saturday 25 January 2014, 3 pm to 6 pm.
