This paper br iefly descr ibes the archaeological findings on the M7 Portlaoise–Castletown/M8 Portlaoise–Cullahill motorway scheme. At the time of writing, archaeologists are still on the ground working on this large scheme so what follows are purely preliminary findings. These are very exciting, however, and I hope to convey something of the thrill that archaeologists experience when revealing previously unknown sites and artefacts. I will also consider how archaeologists interact with the landscapes in which archaeological sites and artefacts are found, and will attempt to explain the total disappearance of these sites from the landscape and from any written or oral record.
