In August 1967 human remains were uncovered (E001133) during digging foundations at Emmet Street, Trim. These burials were uncovered in foundation trenches (D 0.45m). Several complete skeletons and portions of others were uncovered in situ. The orientation of the graves was not always evident. There was no evidence for any type of stone lining around the burials, and the individual grave-cuts do not seem to have been identifiable. All the remains were those of adults, two of whom appeared to be younger adults (Cahill & Sikora 2011, vol 2, 408-416).
