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.
In advance of the Institute's 2015 Working Conference for Educators: Building a Strong Future for Archaeological Outreach and Education the AIA is soliciting a series of one-page descriptions of existing archaeological outreach and education programs.
We began the first week with our second group of students by explaining the archaeology of Achill Island and touring the sites at Slievemore.
