Sites and Monuments Record
The Northern Ireland Sites and Monuments Record (NISMR) holds information on over 16,000 archaeological sites and historic monuments. These are the remains of settlements, fortifications, ritual sites and tombs created by people over the last 9000 years.
|Information on each site can be accessed online through the Northern Ireland Sites and Monuments Record Database.|
|All the sites listed in the NISMR database can also be located using our Map Viewer.|
Each site in the record has a unique reference number to identify it. The database will provide information such as site type, grid reference, townland, parish, time period and any local site names. There is also a brief description of each site taken from early maps, historical sources and recent site visits.
More detailed information, including full descriptions, plans, photographs and excavation results and finds, can be consulted through the Monuments and Buildings Record.
