  • Nationwide Archaeology - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    archaeology which afflicts the corridors of power in Donnybrook Newgrange and the Bend of the Boyne However while we wait for a full series with more than two episodes dedicated to Ireland s history prior to the Norman invasion we must be sated with the usual tidbits The latest comes in the form of an episode of Nationwide which deals with an attempted full scale facsimile of the Newgrange entrance and chamber as well as some recently discovered rock art at Loughcrew The episode is fairly well made and features some eminent archaeologists who acquit themselves well However the show left me cold It barely scratched the surface of what is interesting about Newgrange and Loughcrew and focused more on the group of art students who had built the Newgrange reconstruction as part of a class project It left me and I m sure most of the other viewers with a curiosity about the many interesting questions raised that would take a whole series to address hint hint RTE While I applaud those archaeologists who took part in the programme I just wish our national broadcaster would get serious about the huge heritage area that is archaeology Not only would it find a ready made audience it would probably end up with a product it could sell world wide to the gigantic diaspora with an interest in their ancestor s past When I look at the high quality of archaeological programming across the water it really does make me wonder why we can t expect and receive just a little bit more than half hour specials and a few very rare two part series See the Nationwide episode here and Secrets of the Stones here Comments Comments are closed What A site about Irish archaeology conferences links opinions news information

    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 Iron Flint and Drink 13 03 2009 Have a look at the new video page for a selection of technology related clips At the moment there s a few on iron a flint knapping tutorial and the great Bronze Age beer experiment I ll keep adding to the page as I find interesting stuff and I ll add anything vaguely archaeological that I find as long as its interesting There s a surprising amount out there Please let me know if you see any good ones I

  • National Monuments Database Major Update - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    almost 55 000 summary descriptions available on the website Work is currently underway on improving the website and it is hoped to move to a completely enhanced map database search facility application in early 2011 This will involve the live streaming of mapping from Ordnance Survey Ireland OSI It is important to highlight that the new OSI mapping is on a different projection to that used on the National Monuments Service website which is in Irish Grid formerly known as the Irish National Grid All mapping data is now captured by OSI using a new co ordinate system based on the Irish Transverse Mercator ITM projection In 2005 the Property Registration Authority formerly the Land Registry moved to ITM and will only accept this format Since then a number of local authorities have followed suit Over the next few years it is expected that all large scale users in the State will migrate to ITM for more information on ITM see http www osi ie en alist migrating to itm aspx ASI have been preparing for this move over the past couple of years The migration to this new mapping forms part of the process in moving towards compliance with the EU INSPIRE directive Do note that within a few years all Irish Grid co ordinates effectively will be historic as the majority of users will be working on and in ITM mapping Current GPS units will either have to be updated with software enhancements or replaced by new units where the former is not possible I wish to acknowledge the on going work by the members of the Archaeological Survey of Ireland unit who are making this possible A huge amount of updating and cleaning has been undertaken in recent years and I hope you will agree that these
