Rathcroghan Conference: Archaeology Above & Below 2017
8th & 9th April 2017
We are delighted to announce our 2017 Conference Programme:
This year our sessions are divided thematically, with focused sessions on Graveyard Studies, Wetland Archaeology, Landscape Studies as well as individual case-studies on particular environments both in Ireland and further afield.
As well as our range of speakers, we will have information tables from the Ordnance Survey of Ireland and the Heritage Council Maps Initiative.
This year we are delighted to welcome Dr. Niall Brady, an expert in Medieval Irish Archaeology and Project Director of the ‘Castles in Communities’ Project, to provide what will be an engrossing Keynote Lecture, ‘Castles in Communities: the Ballintober Project, what, why and how’, to round off the proceedings on a very busy first day of the conference.
We finish the weekend with a unique field-trip to the masonry remains of Ballintober Castle, led by Dr. Brady, who will provide us with the historical background to this fascinating monument, as well as discussing some of the results from the ongoing excavations and geophysical investigations being conducted as part of the ‘Castles in Communities’ Project.
