The Achill Archaeology Field School on Achill Island in Ireland was established to address the very real need for hands-on archaeology field school training for students of archaeology and anthropology from around the world. Core components include archaeology methodology, archaeology survey and archeaology recording procedures, environmental archaeology and introduction to archaeological ceramics.
These archeaology field school course components are backed up by weekly archaeology lectures provided by experienced Achill Archeaology Field School staff and visiting archaeologists from NUI Galway and other Irish universities.
A weekly archaeology Field Trip with on-site archeaology lectures is held on Wednesday of each week to introduce our archaeology students to the wealth of archaeological sites on Achill Island, Achill Beg Island and the Corraun peninsula.
