N.A.C in the news!

The results of a significant archaeological dig have been unveiled in County Down.

Neolithic and Bronze Age remains were found at Loughbrickland when work began on new roads four years ago.

They included evidence of three Neolithic houses dating back over 6,000 year and a Bronze Age burial site.

Information boards have now been erected at the site. It is not yet known where the artefacts will be stored on a permanent basis.

Speaking about the finds, Education Minister Catriona Ruane, on behalf of Regional Development Minister Conor Murphy, said: "The display of these information boards marks the completion of the archaeological works associated with the A1 Loughbrickland to Beech Hill dual carriageway scheme.
