The archaeological site at Wood Quay in Dublin City Centre was discovered in the 1970s when Dublin Corporation was digging foundations for a new office.

Remains of Norse and Norman villages were found along with artefacts like coins, pottery, leatherwork and swords; many of which are on display in the National Museum of Ireland and Dublinia.

Today, the historic site is occupied by Dublin City Council’s Civil Offices, though it is marked by a plaque.
