Ireland 2018: The Archaeology of Modern Ireland Field School (Skibbereen)


‚Äč The Archaeology of Modern Ireland Field School explores the material history of the Irish Diaspora in and around Skibbereen, County Cork, an area that is infamous as a metaphor for the impacts and horrific sufferings of the Great Starvation. Through archaeological investigations, archival research, and interviews with local historians of the Skibbereen Heritage Center and members of the local community, students will receive extensive and intensive experience learning about the Irish Diaspora, socio-cultural change in Ireland over time, and the experience of Irish immigrants internationally.

The field school is directed by Dr. Stephen Brighton from the University of Maryland. The field school will run from May 26 to June 30, 2018. Applications are due by March 1, 2018.
