Viking houses discovered in Dublin


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.
