The Woodstown Viking Site located along the Waterford Greenway presents great potential for heritage tourism including direct access to the site and participation in public archaeology in tandem with an excavations programme. Currently, as the significance of the site lies in below-surface remains Greenway users are largely unaware of the significant size and scale of the Viking settlement they are cycling and walking by.
In order to convey the significance and heritage interest of this part of the Greenway it is proposed to install a visually impressive and informative Heritage interpretation sign explaining the significance of the Woodstown Viking Site. Funding was allocated to commission Abarta Heritage to draft text content in English, Irish and Old Norse and source appropriate imagery and illustrations for the sign which will be fabricated and installed in 2021.
