Contains reports on a number of important archaeological excavations in the Dublin area in recent years, including Claire Walsh's discovery of a medieval property plot at Back Lane, which contained the remains of Hiberno-Norse and Anglo-Norman houses; Alan Hayden's investigation of the medieval riverine environment in Temple Bar with vital insights into the depth and course of the Liffey in centuries gone by; and Linzi Simpson's works on the grounds of St Patrick's Cathedral, which uncovered parts of the medieval nave, including the south wall and original floor. Also of note: Matthew Stout reconsiders the evidence for Dublin's situation vis-à-vis the road network of ancient Ireland; Patrick Wallace discusses the role of women in Viking-Age Dublin; Ian Riddler and Nicola Trzaska-Nartowski reassess the significance of a very early comb excavated in Temple Bar, examining its significance for the early settlement of Dublin; Lenore Fischer explores a little-known literary source for the Battle of Clontarf; and Geraldine Stout analyses the role of Dublin's great Cistercian abbey, St Mary's in Oxmantown, in the market economy of the Fingal area in particular.
