Nine souterrains (ME019-030051-/030059-) have been recovered in excavation at site of passage-tomb complex (Eogan 1984, 7; Eogan 2012, 86). These are associated with early Christian occupation largely on E side of mound. Three souterrains have been published (ME019-030051-/052-/053-); two of these had simple passages and beehive chambers (Eogan and Byrne 1968, 357, 375) while the third was Y-shaped in plan (Eogan 1974, 89-91). Souterrain No. 4 on Stout's plan of Knowth (Stout 2002, 50). 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. Date of upload/revision: 06 November 2013
