OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMicroburin’s Mesolithic Sites & Finds page has been updated with:

Dublin, Republic of Ireland | Late Mesolithic fish trap (6,500 years old) discovered at Victoria Quay.

“The wicker trap was discovered at the deepest point of the excavation near an attenuation tank and appears to be extremely well preserved. Up until now, only post-medieval material had been discovered on the site.”
