Still Waters Posted February 5 #1 Share Posted February 5 (IP: Staff) · The discovery of a Neolithic settlement is helping to shed new light on how people lived on the shores of Lough Foyle some 5,000 years ago. Archaeologists discovered evidence of two large rectangular houses dating to around 3,800 BC during a 2021 dig on Clooney Road, Londonderry. Neolithic tools, pottery and cooking utensils have also been unearthed. Experts say dwellings like those in Derry have rarely been excavated. Archaeologist Katy McMonagle was the site director of the Clooney Road dig. Rectangular houses from this period are rare to find outside of Scotland and Ireland, Ms McMonagle said. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-64505669 The finds feature in the latest series of BBC Two’s Digging for Britain. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b014hl0d 6 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
