  • Title: 1112 Excavations | Irish Archaeology Field School
    Descriptive info: Excavations links.. Excavation locations.. 2010 Bective Abbey Excavation Preliminary Report.. Supervisor Positions.. The Irish Archaeology Field School 2012 research programme will focus on archaeological excavations in County Meath, Ireland.. Excavations will be undertaken at two sites during the 2012 season, from 28th May through 31st August 2012.. Blackfriary (Trim): 28th May - 31st August 2012.. Site Director - Finola O'Carroll.. The Black or Dominican Friary at.. Trim was founded by Geoffrey de Geneville, Lord of Trim, in 1263.. The Dominican order had arrived relatively late into Ireland (1224) and founded religious houses in Irish medieval towns in the thirteenth century.. Due to their relatively late arrival and the nature of their ministry they were primarily granted sites outside towns.. The friary was of considerable importance and was the location for a meeting of Irish bishops which took place in 1291 and indicates the status of the institution.. 2012 will be the third  ...   Rosnaree, County Meath (excavated by Dr Conor Brady in 2010 & 2011).. Our senior supervisor and resident IT whizz, Gianmarco Cattari, has developed an online interactive post-excavation database, which we use to record our site data.. The system, called SPADA uses free ware and is accessible to students of the field school during their stay with us, and when they return to their home institutions.. This way, students can keep an eye on what happens with the features and finds they excavate, the plans they drew, the notes they took, all the way through to publication.. Gianmarco is also an expert on open-source GIS software, and has developed a recording system that captures the information from the IAFS and CRDS excavations.. Check us out on YouTube!..
