    evidence collected for my dissertation and I will almost certainly completely disagree with aspects of it in the next few months I d welcome comments or thoughts bearing in mind this is research in progress You can have a look at the slideshow that went with the talk here My Recent Publications 28 4 2010 My masters thesis available here has finally been published in article form in the Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy Section C almost five years after I finished it The paper was co written with Prof Gabriel Cooney and is available to download on the new look Royal Irish Academy website here or on my personal site here I ve also had two smaller publications come out recently including a review for the Irish Museums Association Newsletter and a contribution to a lithics report written by Dr Graeme Warren on stone tools from a Mesolithic site in Scotland Full references are below and you can find and usually download my other publications here Dolan B and Cooney G 2010 Lambay lithics the analysis of two surface collections from Lambay Co Dublin Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy 110C 1 33 Dolan B 2009 Report on the Annual lecture of the Irish Museums Association Irish Museums Association Newsletter 56 9 10 Warren G with Dolan B 2009 Stone Tools in Murray H K Murray J C and Fraser S M eds A tale of the Unknown Unknowns A Mesolithic Pit Alignment and a Neolithic Timber Hall at Warren Field Crathes Aberdeenshire Oxford Oxbow Books 97 107 Archaeology and Grey Literature Finding the Treasure 16 4 2010 X marks the spot So we ve established that Grey literature when it has avoided becoming ghost literature is indeed a treasure worth finding but that begs the question how do you get your hands on it and importantly who owns it I imagine that the issue of access is different in every country do let me know in the comments but in Ireland the way you get your hands on juicy grey reports is largely informal We have the advantage of a tiny population and an even more miniscule group of archaeologists with very few degrees of seperation A fair number of the reports I have managed to get my hands on for my research have been given to me by generous friends willing to let me raid their hard drives or put me in touch with someone else who would However I ve found going the official route and contacting individual companies can be tedious and often a waste of time a personal connection introduction is often essential Directors excavators are usually far more helpful and generous with their material if you can contact them and the NRA archaeologists are generally happy to let you have anything you need The personal approach has worked for me but I run into brick walls when I don t know anyone who I can contact directly and I imagine such an

  • Tree Felling with a Bronze Axe - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    making pit We chopped down one of the trees with a replica bronze axe to see how long it would take to fell compared with the modern iron axes we had we took 11 minutes with the bronze axe and only 4 minutes on a similarly sized oak with the modern iron axe Presumably the difference wouldn t have been quite as acute in the past considering variations in metal alloys and of course in the skill of the axe wielders Why you ask In these days of climate change flooding and general mayhem as if there has ever been a time when those things haven t been happening Well its all part of Niall s research into early Irish charcoal production which nicely compliments my own work into early Irish ironworking Hopefully we will be able to use the traditionally produced oak charcoal to fuel the furnace for SMELT 2010 which will take place in March 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

    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 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

  • TAT 2009 - Register Now! - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    us to a call for proposals for conference funding from the UCD Graduate School of Arts and Celtic Studies All three of us being perennial volunteers and always looking for something to distract attention from actual PhD work we were immediately on the look out for some ideas With a little help along the way from Dr Graeme Warren and Dr Jo Bruck we realised there was an existing college research strand on material culture A subject central to archaeology but also lots of other disciplines We decided to go with it making it a truly inter disciplinary effort I don t think the website even mentions archaeology Preparations are well under way and in fact we are meeting to go through the submitted abstracts tomorrow Its a big job because we have received about double the number we expected from all across Europe and America Hopefully the programme will be up soon In the meantime make sure you register and come to Dublin from the 5th to the 7th May 2009 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

  • New RTE Archaeology Programme - Dig It! - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    and actually informative I presume this is connected with the archaeology element of the school curriculum which recently saw the launch of a transition year resource pack to go along with the primary school one You can play the game yourself on the programme s website but I m afraid you can t enter unless you re in fifth or sixth class and are happy to don an archaeologist s hat There s no indication that I can find of how the programme will work or what format it will follow but I m a big advocate of this kind of popularisation of archaeology Getting kids and by extension their tax paying parents interested and involved in archaeology is the best way to justify our largely publicly funded research The production company doesn t appear to have any background in historical archaeological programming judging by a brief glance at their website and a lot of their recent stuff falls into the category of very light entertainment e g Celebrity Jigs and Reels but the website shows promise so I ll withhold judgement for now EDIT More info on how to apply here Comments Comments are closed What A site about
