Greystones Southern Access Route and the N11 Kilpedder Interchange

  

 

greystones1The Greystones Southern Access Route and the Kilpedder Interchange were constructed by Wicklow County Council to connect Greystones and Kilpedder, Co. Wicklow to the N11 running south from Dublin. Archaeological monitoring and resolution of sites for the road projects were carried out in 2004 for Greystones Southern Access Route (GSAR) followed by GSAR Links in 2005 and the N11 Kilpedder Interchange project in 2006. All three formed a stretch of road running east-west, south of Greystones from Charlestown across the N11, linking the Greystones route to the village of Kilpedder.

In total, 29 sites were identified and resolved. Perhaps the most interesting site was a small circular enclosure of Middle/Late Bronze Age date. Within this enclosure, both inside and directly outside it, were a group of five upright ceramic vessels containing cremated human bone.
