The Blackfriary Archaeological Field School (BAFS) been providing archaeological training and internships to university students (see www.bafs.ie) since 2010. While at a time of pandemic and uncertainty it is difficult for staff and students to plan ahead for study abroad experiences, BAFS would like to assure you that our field school activities are fully compliant with health and safety in light of Covid 19 and it helps greatly that our activities are predominantly outdoors.
The Blackfriary Archaeology Field School is part of the award-winning Blackfriary Community Heritage and Archaeology Project (BCHAP) in the town of Trim, County Meath, Ireland. Focusing on the buried remains of the 13th century AD/CE Dominican friary and associated graveyard, the field school is suitable for students from a wide range of backgrounds including archaeology, history, anthropology, and forensics – and for students looking for a unique study abroad experience. As participants in a public archaeology project, students are actively engaged with our outreach activities on site. They are also housed with families in Trim, allowing them to integrate with the local community.
We are offering two courses in summer 2021 (BAFS Summer courses), as well as internship opportunities (BAFS Internships). The four-week course, 2 sessions from 4 – 28 May and 1 – 25 June, provides training in excavation and post-excavation methods. The five-week course, from 30 June to 30 July 2021, includes a significant bioarchaeology component taught by Dr. Rachel Scott of DePaul University, Chicago, as well as general excavation techniques. We hope to be able to grant 10 ECTS credits (generally equivalent to 5 American semester credits) for these courses and can confirm this with you soon. For students with previous field and/or lab experience, we offer internships for a minimum of six weeks in the areas of excavation, post-excavation, and community outreach. You can find more information on our brochure (BAFS Flyer), through the links to our social media pages below, or on our website at http://bafs.ie/
