Achill Archaeological Field School
This is our third season at the Cromlech Tumulus on Slievemore. So far we have discovered a large stone walled Middle Bronze Age building that is overlain by a series of small Medieval and post Medieval huts. The site is also connected to a nearby Megalithic tomb by a pre bog field wall. This season we hope to find the remaining portions of the Middle Bronze Age building and examine a very interesting dry stone foundation that seems to overlay the site. We also plan to examine the connection between the pre-bog field wall and the rest of the site, and determine whether or not there is a Neolithic component to the site.
We offer two different types of courses. One and two week introductory courses suitable for a wide variety of people and 2, 4 and 6 week accredited courses suitable for university students.
Alongside comprehensive instruction in excavation and recording techniques our different courses offer a variety of additional tuition including finds illustration, digital site illustration, finds processing, field surveying and mapping in ArcGIS online. Each course is supplemented by a series of lectures designed to complement and enhance the field work and off site work.
