A final season of work was carried out by Queen’s University on behalf of the Environment Service, DOE(NI), School of Geosciences, at this very rich Neolithic settlement site (begun in 1989). Excavation in 1992 revealed the full plan of the Neolithic house and associated features and yielded many more finds. A ditch which may have enclosed the settlement was located and its course is to be explored using geophysical survey techniques.
