We hope that all readers, old and new, will join us in celebrating Archaeology Ireland’s 30th birthday as we host a one-day conference on 30 September 2017 in George’s Hall, Dublin Castle (generously provided by the Office of Public Works, Visitor Services). Many readers will recall the series of enjoyable one-day conferences that Archaeology Ireland ran for eleven years from the late 1990s. This forthcoming conference, Answers from the ground: archaeological sites that have changed our view of Ireland’s past, will present evidence from archaeological excavations that have taken place over the last 30 years.
All of the presentations on the day will offer new and revealing insights into understandings of Ireland’s past, including evidence from Hermitage, Co. Limerick, on Mesolithic cremation burial; the role of Poulnabrone in changing perceptions of the early Neolithic; the first hillforts in Ireland; Drumclay, Co. Fermanagh, which opens an unparalleled doorway into medieval life in Ireland and contemporary lake settlements; Raystown, Co. Meath; Trim, Co. Meath; and the archaeology of 1916. We are also delighted to have Prof. Mike Parker Pearson (Institute of Archaeology, UCL) speaking on the Stonehenge/Durrington Walls Project.
Conference fee: €60
Concession price of €45 for subscribers, students and seniors.
