Wild Child Day at Birr Castle
Birr Castle Gardens and Science Centre
22 August, 10am - 5pm
Preliminary results of the 2018 investigations at Raheen na Chluig Church. Based on last year's excavation this is a very exciting area from an archaeological perspective.
A community-led research excavation was undertaken at Raheenacluig Church , Bray, during Heritage Week 2017. Artefacts recovered from the topsoil ranged from prehistoric lithics to modern 20c transfer and glazed wares. Under the topsoil there was a range of post-medieval material including ceramics, structural ferrous objects, floorboard nails and possible furniture tacks from at least the 16th century to the 20th century giving a window into prehistoric and post-medieval around the church.
