Minimising impact while increasing knowledge at Mullanstown, Louth

DEC 01ST, 2014

In 1909, while ploughing a low, flat-topped hillock in the townland of Mullanstown, Co. Louth, a farmer unexpectedly came upon human bones. Nearly 100 years later, during the early planning stages for the N52 Ardee Bypass, archaeologists had an opportunity to reinvestigate this site and, with the aid of the results from geophysical survey and archaeological testing, facilitate a redesign of the preferred route so as to avoid the core of an important early medieval burial ground.
