This year’s bulletin contains reports on 123 sites. County Dublin has the most (23 sites), followed (as last year) by County Galway, with 12 sites. Most of the sites reported on in this issue were investigated before development. This trend is to be applauded in that it shows that archaeologists are being consulted at an earlier stage in the development of sites than used to be the case. The vast majority of sites investigated this year date from the medieval and post-medieval periods, owing to the huge number of excavations taking place in urban sites. Early Christian sites are the next-most numerous, followed by Bronze Age and sites of uncertain dates in equal quantities, and then Neolithic sites.
