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.
This week on Achill Island was spent training on AutoCad on rainy days and cleaning up trenches for photography and drawings.

In advance of the 2015 Working Conference for Educators, the AIA is soliciting one-page descriptions of existing archaeological outreach and education programs.
