Programs in 2019

The Irish Archaeology Field School provides a wide range of expert led research focused courses designed to introduce students to practical archaeological field methods, and to build and expand on knowledge and experience gained in the classroom.  Courses are ideal for students of anthropology, archaeology, history, medieval studies, bioarchaeology, forensic anthropology, geography, environmental science, Irish studies and community archaeology. Students may earn transferable university credits towards their undergraduate degree, through our academic partners at the Institute for Field Research and Maynooth University Ireland.
