Abstract

A roadway of sandstone flags running for 950m across a bog was examined. A number of clay/gravel and timber/brushwood surfaces were found underneath. After the stone road had been covered by peat for some time a crude wooden trackway was laid over it, possibly in the thirteenth century A.D. A number of horseshoes were found between this trackway and the surface of the flagstones.
