A mixed housing development at Sevitsland, Julianstown, Co. Meath, required monitoring of all subsurface works. The site is west of the village of Bettystown on the outskirts of an area known to be rich in archaeological remains. The entire site, c. 4 acres, was stripped down to the top of the subsoil by a mechanical excavator fitted with a toothless bucket. Finds included clay-pipe stems, post-medieval and modern pottery sherds and fragments of red brick. No features of archaeological significance were discovered.
