Situated on a level landscape. In 1984 an area of about 2 ha (c. 5 acres) was occupied by relict field banks (Wth of base 3.5-4.5m; int. H 0.3m; ext. H c. 0.5m) and silted ditches (Wth c. 1.5-2m; D c. 0.2-0.4m). These features create at least four small square fields (dims c. 30m x c. 20m) and some larger ones. Ridge and furrow cultivation is noted in only one of the larger fields, and only one possible house site, visible as a grass-covered platform (dims 7.5m x c. 4m; H 0.3m), is identified. The area seems to have been reclaimed by 2000 (OSAP). The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987). In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of revision: 17 April 2019
