Bronze Age settlement found in Wicklow

Archaeological excavations in advance of the construction of the Wicklow Port Access and Town Relief Roads have opened a fascinating window to the past. The council began its digs at Ballynerrin Lower in Wicklow (Ireland) at the Marlton Road end of the scheme. There archaeologists found a Bronze Age settlement approximately 4,000 years old. A small circular house or hut was found beside a fulacht fiadh - cooking place. The Marlton excavations are complete.
