Fragments of Lives Past - Archaeological objects from Irish road schemes
Venue: City Wall Space, Wood Quay Venue, Dublin Civic Offices, Dublin 8.
Fragments of Lives Past: archaeological objects from Irish road schemes will take place on Thursday 22 August at the City Wall Space, Wood Quay Venue, Dublin Civic Offices, Dublin 8. This year’s seminar will be exploring the theme of archaeological objects and what they tell us about the past peoples of Ireland. We will be going beyond mere measurements to look at the artefacts themselves and emphasise the human or individual aspects behind the actual objects. Speakers at this year’s seminar will be coming from both Ireland and abroad.
We are also delighted to announce that, in partnership with the Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Ancient Technologies of the School of Archaeology, University College Dublin, we will be running hands-on workshops giving people the opportunity to touch and examine a number of replicas and talk to the archaeologists who made them using traditional methods and techniques.
The proceedings of last year’s seminar—Futures and Pasts: archaeological science on Irish road schemes—will be launched directly after the seminar.
