Geo-archaeological monitoring of geotechnical investigations (GI) was conducted on the scheduled monument of Baile Hill. The work was undertaken for a research project for slope stability assessment. It involved monitoring and recording of a single window sample borehole located at the top of the monument. A deposit sequence was identified related to the formation of the present monument, some of which corresponds to that recorded during the 1977 excavations on the top of the motte. This enabled an accurate height to be recorded for these deposits, including material related to the construction of the mound, a levelling deposit and soil related to the heightening of the mound. Deposits containing suitable material for dating were not encountered.
