Early Start in Irish Archaeology at University College Cork
This annual, four week course is designed to give US archaeology and anthropology students a unique insight into the discipline of archaeology as it is practiced in Ireland. Through a combination of field and classroom experience, and extensive field trips, students look at the broad sweep of Irish Archaeology from the initial settlement of the island in the aftermath of the last Ice Age to the seventeenth century when Ireland was incorporated into the wider world of the British Empire, which by that time also included colonies in North America. The wide chronological scope of the course is one of its particular strengths. It allows students to recognize long-term processes and to pick out similarities and differences between the various societies that developed in Ireland over the millennia. However not all periods are given equal attention: there is a particular focus on periods which continue to play a role in the formation of modern Irish identities. Students will see that there is often a wide gulf between the popular view of the past and the archaeological evidence.
