2022 Excavations

Our 2022 excavations on the Rock proved to be an incredible experience for both students and staff, as our team continued to piece together centuries of medieval occupation on the Rock of Lough Key. We have identified at least three internal structures that date to the twelfth through fourteenth centuries, and have discovered artifacts that appear to suggest an even earlier occupation extending into the 8th century. We are working through our analysis and reports, which we will post to this site in the coming weeks.
