Summer Archaeology Field Schools 2018 with Academic Credit - Caherconnell, Ireland

Caherconnell Archaeology Fieldschool

Caherconnell Archaeological Field School, Carron, County Clare, Ireland.

Excavation Season 2018- May 28th through August 3rd (consisting of 2, 4 and 6 week sessions)

Caherconnell Archaeological Field School was set up with a vision for providing unforgettable archaeological experience in the unique Burren region. In partnership with the National University of Ireland in Galway we aim to provide the very best education as well as a cultural element which sees students interact with the people of the area daily.

We organise accommodation, meals, daily transport, weekend learning, on-site lectures and daily tuition. 

Amazing as this site is, it is far from the only archaeology of interest at Caherconnell.  Three other stone cahers or ringforts (at least one of which is earlier in date), a probable Late Bronze Age burial mound, two Bronze Age boulder burials, house sites of as yet unknown date, an ancient field system, and a prehistoric house are all part of the archaeological landscape found at Caherconnell.

All of our courses are accredited by the National University of Ireland, Galway but are also open to anyone with an interest  in archaeology or students who do not to wish to enroll for academic credit.
 A list of universities whose students have already received Academic Credit from NUIG can be found here. For detailed dig reports 2007-2016 please click on the link below: 

Fees include the following: Tuition, Accommodation, Transport to and from the dig site daily and breakfast, lunch, dinner and breaks daily.
