Community Excavation

WANT TO BE PART OF A COMMUNITY DIG?! Our event includes excavation, tours, workshops and children’s archaeological events throughout heritage week! Advance booking is essential.

In January of 2018, the Irish Archaeology Field School (IAFS) and The Irish National Heritage Park (INHP) launched a major new research project – ‘Digging the Lost Town of Carrig’. This project assesses one of the most historically significant sites in Ireland, the ‘Ferrycarrig Ringwork’ the first Norman fort in the country, founded in the winter of 1169 by Robert Fitzstephen. Now is your chance to join this important excavation for free!
