About this event
UCD School of Archaeology in association with Abarta Heritage and the Landscapes of Revolution Project are hosting a one-day FREE online public conference titled:
“Material Legacies: The Archaeology of the Irish Revolutionary Period”
Saturday 26 March from 09.30 – 4 pm.
The conference will highlight past and current archaeological projects from across the country that examine aspects of the 1916 Rising, the War of Independence, and the Civil War.
Featuring a range of varied and innovative approaches, these talks will aim to demonstrate the important contribution that archaeology can make to our understanding of the revolutionary decade. The topics covered range from studies of prisons and internment through to analyses of sites of conflict. In addition, the conference will also seek to shed light on the extreme vulnerability of this revolutionary archaeology, and the major potential it holds for a unique engagement with Ireland’s revolutionary past.
All are welcome to attend this event, which will be hosted via zoom and all registered participants will be sent a private link in advance.
