Burnt mound at Ballyvergin, Co. Wexford (00E0473)

This entry is part 23 of 30 in the Issue [1] 04

Archaeological Excavation Report

Burnt mound

The site at Ballyvergin comprised one hearth, two ditches, twenty-five stakeholes and a number of pits, some of which may have acted as troughs. It was located close to a stream and heat-shattered stones and charcoal were found in several of the deposits. The site has therefore been interpreted as a burnt mound, although the identification of troughs is tentative. The area of excavation was truncated by later (modern) field ditches.
