The Kilkenny Archaeological Project in conjunction with Earthsound Geophysics, Dan Tietzch-Tyler and Kilkenny Archaeology are carrying out a ground penetrating radar and resistance survey at Kilkenny castle. This exciting project, which is funded by the Heritage Council, is the first time a geophysical survey has been carried out at the castle. The key aim of the project is to uncover the plan of William Marshal’s great concentric castle which is believed to have occupied the site in the thirteenth century, and of which only about a third is still extant.
