Achill Archaeology Field School
Archaeology & Anthropology Field School in Ireland
Achill Archaeological Field School welcomes international archaeology students from all over the world! Our students come to experience Irish archaeology in a beautiful island landscape off the west coast of Ireland and participate in archaeological excavations and survey projects under the supervision of highly experienced archaeologists and environmental scientists.
The Achill Archaeological Field School is the oldest and probably the foremost Field School of archaeology and anthropology in Ireland and celebrates 21 years of archaeology fieldwork and research. The mission of the Achill Archaeological Field School is to provide a unique experience for students interested in archaeology and anthropology who wish to explore the rich cultural heritage of Achill Island on the west coast of Ireland.
The Achill Archaeological Field School has been training students in field techniques for 21 years. We usually conduct two archaeological excavations each year and these create an ideal training environment in which we can teach students to excavate and to record the results of their excavations. The field school programme commences in March / April and continues through to September. Archaeology courses from 1-week to 10-weeks are available for all people interested in archaeology.
Academic Credit is available for all of our Modular Courses in archaeology, with applications welcome from students aged 16 years of age and upwards. Mature archaeology students are particularly welcome.
A special archaeology field school programme is available on request for Second Level students.
We also offer a selection of Guided Tours to archaeology sites and monuments in the West and Midlands of Ireland.
