The lithics analysed in this chapter come from a number of separate sites discovered during site works associated with the development of a golf-course and related facilities at Killeen Castle, Co. Meath. Site A was identified as a prehistoric site and produced the bulk of the lithics, amounting to 34 artefacts. Two lithics came from Site D annexe, outer enclosures associated with a ringfort site of probable early medieval date.; seven lithics came from Site G, a possible moated site of medieval date; and the remaining one lithic was found at Site H, a D-shaped enclosure of probable early medieval date.
