An archaeological assessment of a proposed residential development at Rossnaree, Beauparc, Co. Meath, was carried out in September 1996. The site lies in a prehistoric landscape and is close to sites SMR 26:5, 26:4, 19:48, and 19:259. Six test-trenches were excavated in the area to be disturbed by the proposed development. In all of the trenches natural boulder clay was exposed close to the surface and at a consistent depth. The site would appear to be devoid of any archaeological stratigraphy, and no finds or features were recovered.
