Item image
Brushwood and roundwoods laid side by side and oriented roughly E/W exposed in section in the drain face 0.02m from the field surface. The site was also visible in the opposing drain face and therefore had a minimum length of 1.2m. The elements ranged in diameter from 0.03-0.13m and were a mixture of brushwoods and roundwoods placed closely together to form a packed structure. A single element was sampled from the site and later identified as maple. The function of this site remains unclear but it may represent a short length of trackway or a small platform like the other wooden structures in close proximity to the Bronze Age trackway ME-KND001a-d. ME-KND0012 is located 1m to the north and ME-KND014 is 8.2m to the south. The site was located in moderately decomposed sphagnum peat with frequent inclusions of eriophorum and ericeacous remains. Recorded by the Irish Archaeological Wetland Unit (University College, Dublin) in 2005. Date of upload: 11 February 2009
