Archaeologists have discovered a Bronze Age settlement and a number of other significant finds on the proposed route of a multi-million euro bypass in County Cork (Republic of Ireland).
National Roads Authority project archaeologist Ken Hanley confirmed that they had made a very exciting find near the village of Rathcormac.
Pottery found on the site at Ballybrowney lower, one mile west of the village indicates it was inhabited around 1,600 BCE. The site had three large enclosures and was surrounded by timber defences which were probably around 10ft high.
