Rathcroghan Archaeological Conference

Archaeology Above & Below

Ireland’s only annual community archaeology conference which takes pace every April, is now in its seventh year.

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.
