Last week was a major one for Rubicon Heritage Services Ltd, as two archaeological monographs showcasing our work with the National Roads Authority were published. The first, Through the Lands of the Auteri and St. Jarlath was launched at Claregalway Castle, Co. Galway. It examines the archaeological findings from our excavations in advance of the M17 Galway (Rathmorrissy) to Tuam scheme and also the N17 Tuam Bypass. The next day we were in Carlow, Co. Carlow for the launch of A Journey Along the Carlow Corridor, which discusses the results from our excavation of no fewer than 57 archaeological sites in advance of the M7 Carlow Bypass– the most significant and extensive archaeological works to have ever taken place in the county of Carlow. Having recovered from our mini-tour across Ireland, we thought we would share a few photos of the event. You can order the books via the Wordwell site here.
