  • Category: Conference - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    Art and Archaeology although there must of course be some Archaeology has a relationship with pretty much everything done by people but considering its strong art historical roots art theory would seem obviously linked to archaeological theory I am by no means qualified or interested enough to comment on such things but the UCD Scholarcast Series does have some interesting discussions including a great piece by Blaze O Connor on the archaeological excavation of Francis Bacon s studio As to the aesthetics of the sculpture as with most of the art on the UCD campus I am ambivalent at best Its not offensive in the slightest though it might be if I knew how much it cost but I m not sure it inspires me or even gets a reaction which is how I personally judge a piece of art There is an interesting video below of the installation of the sculpture with a commentary by the artist that may or may not leave the meaning of the piece clearer in your mind 1 Comment Tatty T Shirts 21 04 2009 We have recently launched the TAT t shirt shop here Having been to many conferences where you could take away a little memory to wear on site to the pub or wherever else you enjoy being gently derided for your geeky fashion sense we thought it might be nice to do the same for TAT We thought about having the t shirts on sale during the conference but we simply didn t have the money to buy in a load of them on the off chance they would sell The alternative was an excellent site called Zazzle com that allows participants and anyone else who want a t shirt before or after the conference to order theirs in whatever size shape or colour they prefer The organisers and volunteers will be sporting their own snazzy designs during the three day event We ll see how often they re worn after that TAT Programme Launched 15 04 2009 The TAT programme has now been confirmed and launched Preparations are well under way with the next phase being selection of chairs for the various sessions We are also working on putting together a decent social schedule to make sure people learn about more than just material culture when they come to Dublin Download the programme here and remember to log on to the TAT website and register asap New Review 15 04 2009 My review of the 2009 World of Iron Conference written in haste and at short notice has just appeared in HMS News Dolan B 2009 World of Iron Conference 2009 HMS News 71 5 6 TAT 2009 Register Now 26 03 2009 At the moment I am heavily involved along with my colleagues Emmett O Keeffe and Terry O Hagan in the organisation of TAT 2009 TAT or to give it its full title Thinking About Things Interdisciplinary Futures in Material Culture was a response by the three

  • Cosy but Cramped - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    haven t changed much from that read any of the content but that will follow in due course Patience my friends I do have plans for the site that are more than cosmetic but they will take time a commodity I rarely have at the moment However just to give me a kick up the arse I thought I would list all the things I d like to get done in the next six months You can then look forward to a post six months from now when I provide my abject apologies for achieving practically none of these goals Re organise expand and make useful the links section Do the same with the video section Oh and the images section Attempt to post some of the 40 or so draft blog posts I ve already started or scribbled down on a random post it Combine the Smelt 2010 sub site smelt seandalaiocht com with the main site and put up reports results photos and videos of the experiments Finish my PhD This might get in the way of the above a little Comments Comments are closed What A site about Irish archaeology conferences links opinions news information and the

  • Graphic Arguments - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    caveman version of the nuclear family Image Wikimedia commons So could we do better I would argue that we could do far far better with a little imagination and inspiration at communicating to both ourselves and much much more importantly to the public Where could we do better Probably everywhere in our publications online and print our conferences our teaching and our outreach The internet is full of sources of inspiration on how we can present information in innovative ways The video above taken from TED com if you click that link forget about working for an hour or two showcases some amazing ways of presenting complex data in a visual way even converting much abused charts into moving interactive objects Other sites such as Wordle and Tagul enable anyone to analyze and present text in a visual way They work by scanning text from my MA thesis in the case of Wordle and Seandálaíocht in the case of Tagul and isolating frequently used terms which then appear bigger the terms then acting as links in the case of Tagul try clicking on the image below Information is Beautiful is a blog about visualising data in an aesthetically pleasing way It doesn t work with archaeological data but statistics are statistics and I ve already nicked a few ideas for the maps I am preparing for my PhD There are plenty more sites out there with tools to be used and ideas to be borrowed Finally a little rant why the hell do archaeologists and I include myself in this design commision websites that are useful only to other archaeologists Sites like excavations ie archaeology ie the ADS etc etc are just not accessible to the general public We need to write design sites that engage that inform and that
