Abstract: A large number of small-medium sized earthen platforms are present on the steep slopes surrounding the Upper Lake at Glendalough. These have been known about since the nineteenth century, and surveys in the late Twentieth century identified about 100 in total. Charcoal was frequently observed where these were disturbed.
