Archaeologists working in Mayo County Council work in tandem with colleagues across the organisation to protect sites and monuments during the planning and construction stages of works within the county. They work to record and recover as much as possible when archaeological or historical sites are impacted by large scale works and in doing so preserve a record of our county over time.
Here are a number of presentations prepared in 2012 for Heritage Week which highlight some of the work our archaeologists do.
The following presentation covers a selection of archaeological sites and finds recovered in the period 1998 - 2012 during archaeological monitoring, testing and excavations in South, East and Central County Mayo.
A final presentation below highlights some more finds across a number of works projects in Co. Mayo.
