Woodstown – A Viking-Age Settlement in County Waterford

Archaeologists investigating the proposed route of the Waterford City Bypass on behalf of the National Roads Authority in 2003, uncovered the remains of a ninth century Viking settlement on the banks of the River Suir at Woodstown in County Waterford. The site has been hailed by scholars as one of the most significant archaeological discoveries ever made in Ireland.
