Abstract

A pioneering archaeological survey of the intertidal zone in Strangford Lough was undertaken between 1995-2000. In the course of the work, excavation was undertaken at a stone structure that produced evidence for three sea-powered horizontal mills. The mills are situated beside the famous early monastery of Nendrum. They formed an important part of the monastic complex from the early 7th through to the 8th centuries. The archaeological evidence demonstrates the high level of development in mill technology at that period.
