Item image
Located on a slight rise at the N edge of the floodplain of a W-E section of the River Boyne and c. 120m NE of the Embanked enclosure (ME026-006----). An aerial photograph (GB89.L.13) shows a series of faint cropmarks delineating a rectilinear feature that is probably post-medieveal and an arc of an enclosure that is also visible on OSI images (1995). This has a diameter of c. 30m and is defined by a single fosse feature that might be composed of contiguous pits and is only visible E-S-W, as was pointed out by Conor Brady (pers. com.).
