RATHCROGHAN VISITOR CENTRE
Archaeology Above & Below, Ireland’s only annual community archaeology conference, is now in its seventh year and will take place in Rathcroghan Visitor Centre, Tulsk on Saturday 28th / Sunday 29th March. The purpose of this conference is to create a forum for discussion between communities and individuals who wish to interpret the story of the landscapes that we inhabit. This is achieved by a series of talks, and workshops detailing the aims, techniques and results of community-led research throughout Ireland and further afield. For the last six years, we have sought to inspire an interest in and love for the disciplines of history and archaeology, a curiosity in the unknown, and a willingness to uncover the gaps that appear in our knowledge of our past. Each year, we provide a different theme from which our speakers approach their talk so that we are constantly re-evaluating and questioning what we know with fresh ideas and a new perspective. www.rathcroghanconference.com Phone: (071)9639268
