The Oldbridge estate on the southern bank of the River Boyne, a core part of the battlefield of the Battle of the Boyne, was acquired by the state in 2000. To provide baseline data for the management and presentation of the site, Duchas The Heritage Sen/ice commissioned a team from the Department of Archaeology, UCD, to undertake a pilot survey of the estate with a particular focus on the archaeology of the battle. Here Gabriel Cooney,Emmet Byrnes, Conor Brady (Department of Humanities, Dundalk Institute of Technology) and Aidan O'Sullivan present the approach that was used in the survey and some of the main results.
