Expired Achill Archaeological Field School 2011, Ireland

Post by gap on Thu 19 May 2011, 12:52

The Achill Archaeological Field School, founded in 1991, is a training school for students of archaeology and anthropology from Ireland and from across the world.

The Achill Archaeological Field School offers high-quality courses in Irish archaeology, ranging in length from three days to ten weeks. The courses combine well structured excavation, with field trips, surveying and computer work to provide a comprehensive introduction to field archaeology.

Our 2-week, 4-week and 6-week modular archaeology courses qualify for 6, 9 and 12 ECTS or 3, 6 and 9 semester hours respectively, accredited by the National University of Ireland at Galway with whom the Achill Field School has a formal link.

Our 2011 Research Programme will involve detailed excavation of a number of well constructed circular stone foundations that sit on an artificial terrace downslope from the Middle Bronze Age Round Houses excavated between 2006 and 2010. Whilst the date of the structures is not currently known early indications suggest that they are a part of the extensive prehistoric landscape sealed beneath the blanket bog on the southern side of Slievemore Mountain. Further excavation will also take place at the transhumance village at Annagh, north west of Slievemore.

New in 2011" : 2-week Dig- Draw-and-Digitise Course
