    Abstract

    Some Early Medieval Irish high-status sites combine literary, historical and archaeological dimensions. Often these three dimensions are treated in isolation rather than integrated together to contribute to full interpretation of the site and its cultural landscape. The area between Castlerock and Ballycastle, 'the Causeway Coast' in North Derry and North Antrim, is subject to ongoing archaeological survey and contains a small number of high-status sites which are mentioned in the Ulster Cycle literature and form the subject of this paper.
