Field School: Irish Bronze Age

Organised by
National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) (IE)

Experimental Archaeology and the material culture of the Irish Bronze Age with the Irish Fieldschool of Prehistoric Archaeology
A National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) summer fieldschool at Craggaunowen Heritage Park

The Irish Fieldschool of Prehistoric Archaeology (IFPA) is a place where first-class education and cutting-edge research go hand in hand. The fieldschool is fully accredited and transferable credits are available for international students. This is a National University of Ireland, Galway fieldschool and the only archaeological fieldschool singularly focused on Ireland's prehistory. We run excavation, survey and experimental courses. We are based in the west of Ireland, in the beautiful Burren of Co. Clare, near the world famous cliffs of Moher. At the IFPA we want our students to understand the research questions with which we approach our excavations, think critically about the techniques we employ and become fully engaged in the interpretive process. 

Course leaders: Dr Ros Ó Maoldúin and Dr Billy Mag Fhloinn
