The Archaeology of Achill Island and the Corraun peninsula spans the period from the Neolithic (c.3,500 BC ) to the Post Medieval (c. 1900 A.D.)
The extensive archaeology includes a diverse range of archaeology sites from Megalithic Tombs, Bronze Age Roundhouses, Stone Cashels and a Crannog, Promontory Forts, Early Medieval sites, Deserted Villages and Transhumance sites, some of which have been the subject of archaeology research by the Achill Archaeology Field School over the past 20 years.
Current archaeology research involves a study of Boycott's House at Keem, an unclassified megalithic tomb at Slievemore and a transhumance village in Dirk on the north-western slopes of Slievemore, Achill Island
