The environment minister has imposed a “no-go zone” around an archaeological site on the route of a new road in County Fermanagh.
Ancient human remains and pottery were unearthed at the site in Enniskillen.
Archaeologists are currently excavating the crannog – a kind of artificial island – and have said that it could date back more than 1,000 years.
The minister, Alex Attwood, has banned construction traffic from passing close to the crannog during excavation work.
Apparently, some sort of screw-up (or purposefully ignoring it) as the site was supposedly known about prior to the planning.
