Abstract


Two small `forts', probably large round houses, occupying a natural eminence and further defended by banks and ditches, were excavated in advance of road building. Construction began at Site 2 between the first and second centuries BC and at Site 1 between the second and third centuries AD. Two major phases of occupation were found at each site. There are notes on: `Natural topography and landuse' by I D Máté (411--12); `Charcoal identification' by R McCullagh (431--2); `Radiocarbon dates' by P J Ashmore (432--6); `Metalwork' (436--9), `Ceramics' (439), `Querns and worked stone' (439--44), all by H E M Cool; `Petrology of the stone artefacts' by D Dixon (445); `Chipped stone' by D Lehane (445); `Metalworking debris' by R M Spearman (445--6); `Animal bone' by F McCormick (446); and `Human bone' by K McSweeny [K McSweeney] (446).
