Caherconnell Archaeological Field School

Caherconnell Archaeological Field School 2015

Course Overview

The unique Burren landscape of western Ireland has huge archaeological potential, on a local, regional, national, and international scale, due to its excellent preservation of upstanding remains and material culture. The Caherconnell Archaeological Project began in 2007 with an excavation within a large settlement enclosure (a ’cashel’) of Caherconnell, in the central Burren, Co. Clare. The following year, a second excavation was undertaken, this time focused on a medieval structure outside the cashel. 2009 saw a third excavation, one that concentrated on a prehistoric settlement and ritual site. The School was established in 2010 to continue archaeological research in this landscape.
