This site at Pottlebane 3 was excavated by Archaeological Consultancy Services Ltd (ACS) as part of the M3 Clonee–North of Kells Motorway Scheme on behalf of Meath County Council NRDO and the NRA. The excavation was carried out from 28 March to 16 April 2007, under Ministerial Direction Number A030/017 issued by DOEHLG in consultation with the NMI. The site was divided in two cuttings, A and B. A previously identified and recorded archaeological site (ME010:043; an excavated Bronze Age cist in the townland of Woodpole) was situated close to the site at Pottlebane 3. Area A lay 40m to the west of a northwards flowing stream, which was a tributary of the River Blackwater and contained the remains of a burnt mound spread, a trough, two deposits, four pits and a possible fifth. Area B ran alongside the stream and contained the remains of a kiln, a shallow depression, four deposits, a pit and a linear cut/possible pit. The site at Pottlebane 3 was located in pastoral land and in the River Blackwater’s flood plain.
