Stones and Bones Series on Ocean FM

The series Stones and Bones is to be aired by Ocean FM this from this Sunday, 8th April at 9am.  Sunday’s programme will focus on archaeological excavations on the N4 Collooney Castlebaldwin road Development at Ardloy/Springfield. 

As part of the advance works for the N4 Collooney Castlebaldwin Road Development over 32 archaeological excavations were carried out by archaeologists in 2017 on behalf of Sligo County Council.  A number of exciting discoveries were uncovered which included several large prehistoric enclosure sites, one of which is featured in the series Stones and Bones.  A large prehistoric site was excavated at Ardloy/Springfield which included a large double palisade enclosure dating to the Iron age.  This fascinating site will add greatly to our understanding of the Iron Age in the North-West.
