Two Viking houses have been found in the Temple Bar area of Dublin, Ireland. The area was once an island in the middle of the River Poddle, and a Viking settlement prospered here during the 10th and 11th centuries.

Excavations at Meeting House Square started a few weeks ago, as local authorities are preparing to build retractable canopy over the square. Other medieval-era pottery fragments have also been discovered.
