Item image
Situated on a small S-N spur on the E-facing side of the N-S Tara ridge. The cropmarks of three enclosures defined by fosse features, and a field system also defined by fosses or ditches can be seen on oblique aerial photographs (CUCAP: ATC 33-37) from the 1970s. The interpretation of the features is overcomplicated by Newman (1997, 206-07), but the cropmarks do not appear on any other images. This enclosure (diam. c. 56m) is defined by a fosse feature with an inner fosse at E. An arc of an outer fosse extends from SE-W-NW as a form of annexe (ME037-002001-) (max. Wth c. 15m E-W). The enclosure (ME037-002002-) is attached to the NE, and the fields (ME037-002003-) are attached to the W of the annexe. 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: 27 August 2019
