Funding: Irish Archaeology Field School Scholarships

The Irish Archaeology Field School are delighted to announce that Scholarships are now available for our Archaeology, Experimental Archaeology and Geoarchaeology/Environmental Science courses through the Institute for Field Research (IFR). All courses are credited. See here for details. Deadline for scholarships: March 22, 2019, at 5:00pm (Pacific Standard Time).

Our archaeology course – The Medieval Landscape of Ferrycarrig: Tracing the Anglo-Norman Invasion of Ireland, takes place from July 14 to August 10, 2019.
Our experimental archaeology course – Experimental Archaeology in Ireland: Experimental Archaeology and Materiality of The Medieval Period at Ferrycarrig, Co. Wexford, takes place from June 16 to June 29, 2019.
Both these courses are taught from the site of Carrick Castle (and settlement), Ferrycarrig, County Wexford, the southeast of Ireland. This internationally important archaeological monument is the site of the first Norman Castle in Ireland, constructed in 1169. The site is located within the stunning confines of the Irish National Heritage Park, a 40 acre parkland featuring the largest open air museum in Ireland.

Our 2 weeks and 4 weeks geoarchaeology/environmental science course – Geoarchaeology/ Environmental Science in Ireland: The Environmental and Cultural Heritage of the Irish Landscape, administered by our parent company The Irish Heritage School, takes place from July 14 to August 10, 2019 (4 weeks) and August 11 to August 24, 2019 (2 weeks).
These courses uniquely combine field studies with laboratory work to piece together three different landscapes in three distinct locations: Birr, in the midlands; the Burren in County Clare on the West coast; and Clare Island, County Mayo in the Atlantic Ocean (4 wks); The Curragh, County Kildare (2 wks).

We are confident that our courses will appeal to students from a wide range of disciplines – including archaeology, history, anthropology, medieval studies, geology, environmental science, geography, Irish studies etc. – or indeed just students looking for a unique study abroad experience in general. Courses will include third level students of all ages and nationalities. Several cultural trips are provided as part of each course. Together with the option of staying with local families in homestay accommodation, these trips ensure a deeply enriching cultural immersion, guaranteeing students a truly memorable experience.
