  • Seandalaiocht - Irish For Archaeology - Blog - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    have recently released an Android app beta version which searches heritage data in your locality and presents it in your hand with locational information An Irish equivalent would be typing in ringfort to your mobile and being shown the locations of the ringforts in your vicinity and any information available on them Of course the GPS ability of your smartphone would also tell you how to navigate to them The next step on from this is the idea of augmented reality Augmented Reality from the Museum of London Augmented reality apps such as Layar overlay information from the web onto the real world through your phone s camera and screen Electric Archaeology has recently reported on two such apps one developed by the Museum of London and another Voyager XDrive These apps are both capable of overlaying historical and archaeological material onto real landscapes in real time creating incredible tools for re constructing and interpreting past landscapes in the present As yet app development is at a very early stage and their use for archaeology is rare although watch this space for a Seandalaiocht App to be launched very soon but with the opening up of mapping data in the UK and hopefully someday in Ireland along with open source repositories of information such as wikipedia there is scope for the development of new realities experienced through handheld devices that were only a sci fi fantasy twenty years ago UPDATE I came across this post the day after I published mine It showcases a soon to be released Italian iphone app that provides info on ticketing etc for museums in Italy Open Access Path to Irish Research 18 6 2010 People may be interested in this newly launched portal that provides a searchable database of open access i e free publications from various Irish institutions I ve already had a quick look and there are quite a few archaeology papers up already Archaeology and Grey Literature Curating the Treasure 16 6 2010 So what lies in store for the vast grey library Ireland has amassed during its recent splurge in archaeological spending This is potentially the most important issue facing Irish archaeology and to be fair has been discussed almost ad nauseum by the profession e g Archaeology 20 20 Review of Research Needs in Irish Archaeology RIA Report on Irish Archaeology There are a number of key problems which need to be overcome The first is immediate and involves preserving compiling and completing reports The next stage needs to be making these reports available Real accessibility needs to follow eventually and is the ultimate payback to a society which has already paid dearly for the generation of archaeological data The immediate risk from the recession and a lack of funds is the halting of post excavation work and report completion This has always been an issue but the recent collapse of multiple commercial companies compounds the issue In some cases the problem goes beyond a lack of a report

  • Seandalaiocht - Irish For Archaeology - Blog - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    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 informal system is fairly useless for non native archaeologists What is needed is an online repository with a legal requirement to deposit and allow access This has been done on a limited scale by a few laudable organisations e g here here here here and here and by the ADS in the UK but while these are useful a more coherent system is needed Internet publication has to be the solution it has the benefits of being cheap accessible and searchable and by putting peoples work out there you create a natural pressure to maintain standards Of course the issue of standards may be caught up in problems with ownership At the end of the day who owns and therefore is responsible for the reports that make up the grey literature the developer The excavating director The company The author The state This isn t an issue of money no one will be making any profit from these reports It is more about responsibility and accountability Commercial archaeology has complicated things and the idea of individual directors being responsible for bringing sites to completion i e final reports ignores the responsibilities and resources of developers and archaeology companies The issue of responsibility is one I haven t got my head fully around hopefully it will be addressed in the forthcoming archaeology bill but I do feel strongly that grey literature particularly where funded by state developers like the NRA belongs to everyone and should be easily available to them Archaeology is a national cultural asset and the purpose of spending so much money on its excavation is to preserve it by record for the public what s the point if they never see the results This is part 2 of a series of 3 posts on Grey Literature and Archaeology Comité pour la Sidérurgie Ancienne 15 4 2010 I received an email from Janet Lang of the BM yesterday letting me know that the CPSA website has gone live The CPSA despite its grand title is basically a forum for people interested in iron to keep in contact across Europe and the world Its primary contribution in the past when it was kept going by Radomír Pleiner was a newsletter which gave news and abstracts of theses articles and books published on iron as well as numerous international conferences organised by members It has suffered from a bit of a pause in recent years but this promises to be a new beginning and I look forward to many updates on the new website Archaeology and Grey Literature A Hidden Treasure

  • Spring Equinox at Loughcrew - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    a fairly expensive omellette toast cereal I was very dissappointed UPDATE There s an Irish Times article about the equinox at Loughcrew here The Office of Public Works will have staff in attendance at Cairn T Loughcrew on the mornings of Saturday the 20th of March Sunday the 21st March and Monday the 22nd March from 6 15am until 7 30am Admission to the Chamber of Cairn T for the Equinox Illumination of the chamber is free of charge As the chamber is quite small only 5 or 6 people can be inside at a time Visitors are requested to stay inside for only a few minutes so that everyone can get a chance to visit Please note that it is very important that visitors dress warmly and are wearing stout shoes The climb to the top of Carnbane East is very steep and can be slippery after rain or on frosty mornings The Equinox occurs twice a year the Spring Equinox in March and the Autumn Equinox in September The Spring Equinox is an hour earlier because it occurs during our winter time Visit the Coffee Shop at Loughcrew Gardens for breakfast from 7 30am onwards Comments Comments are
