Clare', which was funded by a Heritage Council Heritage Research grant (R00412) for 2010. The project explored the distinctive maritime cultural landscapes of the Fergus estuary, Co. Clare, through an intertidal archaeology of the estuarine channels and the shorelines of the islands found on the lower Fergus estuary, Co. Clare (particularly, in 2010, around Inishloe, Inishtubrid, Horse Island and Shore Island). The project also had a particular focus on the archaeology of the Boarland Rock medieval fishweir complex (Fig.1). The Fergus Estuary and Islands project (2008‐2010) has been remarkably successful, uncovering a range of entirely new archaeological sites: there are 131 archaeological sites listed in the project catalogue (see Appendix 1), 127 of which were completely unknown when the survey began in 2008.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Technical Report||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
