Achill Archaeological Field School has run for over three decades and offers a wide range of archaeology courses designed to suit all interests and budgets. This year’s dig will focus on a deserted settlement of 16 houses at Tawnaghmore, a short walk from the campus in Dooagh. This enigmatic nucleated settlement probably dates to the late/post-medieval period (AD 1550-1900). The excavation aims to identify the site’s timeline more precisely.
Learn excavation skills while exploring this fascinating site. The daily project excavation is supplemented with weekly field trips to other sites of archaeological interest on Achill Island.
