Dry water course

The excavation of the site at Ballynacarriga 1 revealed a dry water course. The stream may have been diverted during construction works associated with the nearby Ballynacarriaga House. A flint flake and sherds of 18 th /19 th  century pottery were recovered from the sands and gravels of the dry water course.  The flint flake dates to the Neolithic period.
