Medieval Rural Settlement Project
Discovery Programme
Position: Student/Field Technician
Duration: July 2006 - August 2006
Description: Phase III excavation of two medieval sites in Ireland; a raised ringfort in Tulsk and a small church in Carnfree. The purpose of the project was to study rural settlement patterns in medieval times. On this project I learned how to use several technologies, such as GPR, laser scanning (Trimble Mensi GS101), and the total station. I received a research grant from the University of Evansville’s Honor’s Program to attend this field school in order to do research on the use of laser scanning technology in archaeology for my senior honor’s thesis. I also gained experience in excavating human burials, including neo-natal remains, from the site of the medieval church in Carnfree.

Position: Student/Field Technician

This area of campus of aluminum houses was nicknamed “Tin City” and was torn down in the late 1950’s. To give archaeology students practical experience, a class each year is dedicated to excavating part of Tin City to see what they can learn about the lives of the veteran students during this period. The excavation revealed standard building materials (brick, tile, nails, etc.) as well as a few personal items of the soldiers and their families, such as children’s toys and hair clips.
