AIA launches new Interactive Dig for the Achill Project in Ireland
June 20, 2014
AIA is working with the Achill Project and the Achill Archaeological Field School (AAFS) in Ireland on a new Interactive Dig. The Achill Project is developing a detailed understanding of the archaeology and history of the Slievemore, the largest mountain on Achill Island. The 2014 excavations will focus on the Cromlech Tumulus, a circular structure at the western end of the site. Follow the project as it unfolds.
We began the first week with our second group of students by explaining the archaeology of Achill Island and touring the sites at Slievemore.
Support archaeological research, education, and preservation.
We are so excited to be celebrating International Archaeology Day again this year on October 18, 2014 to raise awareness for archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to participate in archaeological activities.
