  • Dublin Wheel gets to the Point - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    07 2010 Ok so its not strictly archaeology but since I can see it out the window from where I sit writing archaeology I figure its allowed Feast your eyes on the unimaginatively named Dublin Wheel a stunted cousin of London s famous eye It has been rising beside the Point Theatre for the last few weeks but the spokes only arrived at the weekend I heard a rumour that it was taken from under the noses of our northern neighbours in Belfast maybe there was a bit of trouble smuggling it out It has yet as far as I m aware to acquire a witty moniker from Dublin s denizens but I m sure that won t last long Suggestions in the comments please Share Comments Comments are closed What A site about Irish archaeology conferences links opinions news information and the internet Seandalaiocht on Google Click here for events calendar Categories All Apps Archaeometallurgy Audio Bullauns Conference Design Events Experimental Fieldwork Grants Grey Literature Guest Post Internet Jobs Lithics Me News Other Photography Public Publication Sea Stallion Sites Smelt 2010 Tat Television Video Archives September 2013 April 2013 November 2012 July 2012 May 2012 March 2011 February 2011

    pointing the way to the archaeology jobs in ireland facebook group 183 views with one on a viking house in Dublin coming a close second 179 views Unique visitors per day to Seandálaíocht since its launch A Little Bit of Change 15 02 2010 After a little thinking I have decided to seperate off my C V and publications to my personal site I think this makes more sense as the casual visitor to the Seandalaiocht site generally has no interest in my employment history It ll also give me a bit of space and now it s done some time to fix up the links video and image sections If all those head hunters out there are looking for more info on me I d prefer its all on one clean site free of rants and ramblings This may mean some broken links to files and pages on Seandalaiocht in the short term but I ll fix them as I find em UCD Increasing PhD Fees Sign the Petition 07 12 2009 UCD has somewhat scandalously revised its tuition fees for PhD students Whereas previously fees reduced in the 4th and subsequent years they will now continue to be set at the astronomically high rate charged for the first three years something over 5 grand for me I think This might sound reasonable at first glance but when it comes to PhD students in Arts at least this must largely be profit for the University UCD provides only a supervisor and access to a library not even inter library loans which is often poorly stocked Many students work from home not even costing the college for heating or electricity This is slightly different in the Sciences where the first few years would often involve laboratory facilities but even in the practical disciplines people in the latter years of their research are writing up and using minimal college resources presumably the rationale for the previous payment structure What the changes represent are essentially a tax on PhD students the supposed vanguard of the knowledge economy Most students in the arts would have funding but only for three years despite UCD now regarding PhDs as four year courses as per the American model Students like me who are attempting to finish up within those three years and run over by even a month now face paying over thousands of euros with no income and only the prospect of signing on when they finally succeed in submitting Why the hell would anyone do a PhD in UCD Please please please sign this petition online if you think anything I just said made some semblance of sense Some new ideas 05 10 2009 Last Wednesday I gave a guest lecture to the UCD Archaeology Society on Bullauns and Early Irish ironworking It detailed some of the ideas I have already published here and presented some more in depth arguments I have outlined in an article recently submitted to the Journal of the Royal

  • Papyrus Fragments found in Ancient Irish Bog Book - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    ON BEHALF OF THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF IRELAND TREASURE FROM THE BOG Tuesday September 7th at 10 15pm on RTÉ One RTÉ will air a unique documentary on an amazing archaeological find in County Tipperary The find reveals potential links between Irish Christianity and the Coptic Church of the Middle East On July 20th 2006 a remarkable archaeological find was uncovered in a remote bog at Faddan More in north Tipperary close to the town of Birr Local man Eddie Fogarty was cutting peat with a mechanical digger when he spotted something unusual that looked like some sort of book It would be heralded by Dr Pat Wallace Director of Ireland s National Museum as the most important day in the history of the Museum since 1868 when the Ardagh Chalice came in The find which has become known as the Faddan More Psalter was a fragmented illuminated vellum manuscript encased in an unusual leather binding a book of psalms dating back to the late Eighth century This unprecedented find the first manuscript to be found in a water logged state in a bog posed unique and profound difficulties for the Conservation Department at the National Museum At the time Dr Wallace went on to comment that it is not so much the fragments themselves but what they represent that is of such staggering importance In my wildest hopes I could only have dreamed of a discovery as fragile and rare as this It testifies to the incredible richness of the Early Christian civilisation of this island and to the greatness of ancient Ireland Over the last four years Crossing The Line Films has had exclusive access to the National Museum s team as they embarked upon this dramatic and pain staking journey of recovery and discovery The documentary follows

  • Graveyards as Public Amenities: St James's Graveyard, Dublin - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    treated Wolfe Tone Square There are a number of old graveyards dotted around Dublin city which can easily be missed Two better known ones include the Huguenot Cemetery off St Stephen s Green and the old graveyard beside Donnybrook Garda Station These are little used spaces relatively inaccessible to the public but they do preserve a certain solitude and dignity which can sometimes be lost when graveyards fall out of use Wolf Tone Square formerly the graveyard of St Mary s church on the corner of Jervis Street and Mary Street is a case in point After the graveyard s decline in the twentieth century its gravestones were removed and piled rather forlornly against the wall at the south end where they remain today apart from a fe set into the ground Recent redevelopment of the graveyard as a public square has been less than successful A bland non interactive design combining with its use as a drinking spot to make it a non destination for Dubliners even during the day Gravestones piled at the end of the square Its difficult to know what to do with cemeteries when they go out of use modern sensibilities cringe at the thought of walking on graves although our ancestors had no such qualms often holding markets and fairs on what was often a very convenient open space I m not sure what should be done with St James s graveyard but i hope the solution is neither as bland as Wolfe Tone Square nor as inaccessible as the Huguenot Cemetery A blend of modern use with a respect for the past is usually the best approach Graveyards are always fascinating and often very tranquil places maybe preserving these two assets should be the main goal of the Council when planning for the
