Golden Dig

The photographs here are of work in progress on an archaeological investigation in Golden, County Tipperary, April 2001. Footings of 17th century buildings, including a smithy, have been uncovered. The cobbled yard of the ancient Clanwilliam Boat Club can be seen in these views. The work continues.
