Setting up for Season 3

The sun is splitting the stones at Blackfriary this week and preparations are underway to get the site ship-shape for the opening of the excavations next week. With students arriving on Monday, the cabins have been delivered, tables and chairs are being dusted off, industrial sized boxes of teabags ordered, feature sheets and registers printed, finds bags sample bags organised, and we are nearly ready to go!

We can’t wait to start digging again 🙂

About Irish Archaeology Field School

The Irish Archaeology Field School (IAFS) is Ireland’s leading provider of university accredited, site based archaeological research and training. Our archaeological and heritage programs include research projects in a number of locations in Ireland, including in Co. Wexford and Co. Offaly (with satellite schools frequently undertaken elsewhere). We provide credited and uncredited programs (and internships) for novice and experienced students, and also specialise in the preparation of purpose-built faculty led programs incorporating excavation, historical research, remote sensing, non-invasive survey, ground investigation, landscape assessment etc. Whilst our programs are excavation-centered and aimed primarily at students of archaeology, anthropology and history, courses are open to all, and are guaranteed to give you an enriching and thoroughly worthwhile study abroad adventure.
