Cool new workshop idea...

Postby the_power on Wed Dec 23, 2009 10:32 pm

Ceramic beads dating back 3,500 years and described as being of great significance have been discovered on the route of the new N9/N10 Athy Link Road (co. Kildare, Ireland). The series of 25 small ceramic beads, the only ones of their kind from the Bronze Age and a major coup for Irish archaeology, were discovered along with the cremated remains of a human body on the route.

That's pretty cool. Anyone know where we'ed get some wee images ? I assume it'd be easy to make them in a clamp-fire...

Pictures were published in the print edition of the The Cork Independent. They seem to be lost on the online edition. I would suggest trying to track down a copy in your local library.

On the subject of Bronze age beads. A middle bronze age decorated biconical bead was recovered recently from Sonnagh, Co. Mayo. Details were published in the latest edition of Seanda (pp 8). Its available online on the NRA website.
