The Kiln Fields, Sallins Bypass – by Noel Dunne.

This illustrated talk outlines the archaeological discoveries made in 2016 and 2017 in advance of construction of the M7 Motorway Upgrade and R407 Sallins Bypass, Co. Kildare.

About 20 new archaeological sites were discovered and excavated, including charcoal-production pits, smelting furnaces, cereal-drying kilns, a brick-kiln, post-medieval roadways, a mill-race, prehistoric cremations and a ceremonial ring-ditch. The most significant finding was undoubtedly an early medieval enclosure complex on the banks of the River Liffey, north of Sallins village.

Please Note: This meeting will take place in the Council Chamber of Naas Town Hall.
