Kilcashel Landscape Project
Kilmovee, County Mayo, Ireland
Welcome to the Kilcashel Landscape Project, a multidisciplinary archaeological investigation of a rural townland called Kilcashel, just south of the village of Kilmovee, in northeast County Mayo, Ireland.
The project has been established to address issues concerning settlement dispersal - "from cashel to cottage" and in particular, the formation and development of several enclosures, ringforts and cashels in the townland.
The five year project will examine the significance of historical documentation, cartographic sources, architecture, archaeology and ecology, together with the results of 20th century excavations and new non-intrusive investigations.
