Abstract

This report details the first season of excavation in summer 2010 of the site of a Neolithic lithic scatter and early medieval enclosure at Rossnaree in the Brú na Bóinne World Heritage Site in Co. Meath. It was first discovered as a dense scatter of lithic (chipped stone) material on the surface of a tilled field close to the River Boyne, NGR 299200 273150, at the point where the famous ‘Bend of the Boyne’ begins . This was subsequently investigated using various geophysical techniques at which time it became apparent that there was a substantial multivallate enclosure at the site. This enclosure was reported to the Archaeological Survey of Ireland and an RMP number was subsequently issued (ME019-080---).
