Field RemainsRecords physical remains of sites, whether visible in the field or accessed through excavation. Precedence is given to features considered to be characteristic of the Early Christian/pre-Reform era, such as enclosures, (especially circular or oval), cross-slabs, high-crosses, bullauns and raised areas — with round towers and church remains further down the list unless there is a strong case for doing otherwise.:eccl enclosure - sub-circular (trivallate); inscr graveslab ('ORÓIT DO MÁELPÓIL'); ch ruin in inner encl (windows possibly 13thC); gvyd (just outside outer encl); well 80m to SSW (nos. 3472-4, 3574)

Also included are such items as querns and kilns as flour-production was an important part of life at ecclesiastical (although also, admittedly, at secular) settlement sites.:bell (iron: cl. 1; brz-coated 7th-9thC)
