Association for Environmental Archaeology: One-day Spring Meeting 2007

Environmental Archaeology in Ireland: new perspectives and recent research

Saturday, 17th February 2007

University College Cork, Republic of Ireland

The meeting was attended by 96 people. Many thanks to all participants and all who helped organise the meeting. The student poster prize was won by Ben Pears (School of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Stirling).

The last decade has witnessed an enormous increase in the number of archaeological excavations being undertaken throughout Ireland. This increase in excavation has been accompanied by a substantial increase in studies relating to environmental archaeology, both in the quantity of work and range of analyses being carried out.

It is envisaged that the Cork one-day meeting will provide a much-needed discussion forum for workers carrying out studies in environmental archaeology throughout Ireland, as well as updating the wider archaeological and environmental communities of latest research. It is also hoped that the meeting will attract people from Europe and beyond in order to compare approaches and results.

The meeting was sponsored by:

  • Department of Archaeology, University College Cork
  • Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government
  • The Heritage Council
