Brand New Year


Well, after a quiet Christmas its time to start back to work on organising the second season of Grassroots excavations in Baldoyle. Plenty of work to do not only with the excavations but on the upcoming event in Baldoyle where all of the Season 1 excavation  results will be presented.

A short piece about Grassroots and Brendan O’Neill’s Leinster Cooking Ware experiments can be found in the Winter Issue of the Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland’s Newsletter

Sonja Laus, freelance lithic analyst & macrophotographer, has very generously donated her time and expertise to carry out a Macroscopic Attribute Analysis of the chipped stone finds from Seagrange. Sonja has provided a report of her work with some excellent  photographs of the artefacts.

Finally, charred cereal grain recovered from the excavations have been sent to Queen’s University Belfast for AMS dating. Hopefully the results will be back to us in time for the Spring.
