Archaeological involvement in the realignment of an 8 km section of the N25, the main Cork to Waterford road, at Kilmacthomas village commenced in 1997 with a walkover study of the proposed route (Tierney 1997). This study identified the known archaeological heritage of the proposed route and suggested a number of areas with a high potential for producing more archaeological remains. Initial test excavations were carried out in November/December 1998 and centre line testing and monitoring were carried out between November 1999 and January 2000. The sites excavated under licence number 98E0575 include Neolithic settlement remains, Beaker settlement remains, 3 burnt mounds, an Early Bronze Age structure, other prehistoric structural evidence, and various isolated features, and medieval and later medieval ditches, charcoal pits, metalworking areas, a corn drying kiln, and other structural remains. This is the third and final report to be submitted for the excavation works at Ahanaglogh and west Graigueshoneen.
