  • Seandalaiocht Mobile App for Android, Blackberry, Windows Phones - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    but considering I have no programming skills and its one of only a handful of archaeology related apps in existence I m quite chuffed with it The app was created online using www buildanapp com and should have cost just 19 but because my weird non postcoded address in Ireland wouldn t work with their system they were generous enough to publish it for free So needless to say I highly recommend them Andoid users can get the app by scanning the barcode on this post searching the Android Market for Seandalaiocht or downloading this file and putting it on their phone Blackberry and Windows users can find versions on the Seandalaiocht App page Unfortunately publishing an iphone app is just too expensive at the moment but for those who want to experience the app on their iphone they can surf to a web version at i seandalaiocht com A mobile version of the site is available for non smart phones at m seandalaiocht com 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

  • The Skelligs - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    have already fabricated things on top Go to Utube and look at The fabrication of Skellig Michael Reply Brian link 24 06 2010 09 58 Hi Carolyn I m very sorry to hear that Yes there was a guide at the start of the steps who made it very clear that there had been two deaths last year and emphasised the importance of taking extreme car We were also required to read the safety notices before climbing up Reply Carolyn 24 06 2010 12 30 Brian did they mention that they never told us that the site was not officially open to visitors there were no guides on the Island and the boats captains were not licensed to take visitors out at that time due to a dispute with the OPW They didn t have any type of emergency first aid or personnel trained in first aid at the site After my husband fell they said they were putting emergency personnel on the Island plus guides and medical equipment When the other person fell there was a Doctor from Germany who was a visitor and he attended to her The equipment they had was not sufficient They called for the helicopter as they did for my husband but it took over an hour or longer and they didn t even have a key to open the gate to the helipad I am shocked that the OPW in their safety report are blaming the victims saying it is a mountaineering experience when they know nothing about the 2 people that fell I can assure you my husband was able to climb the 600 steps as we did much hiking We vacationed all the time in National Parks where we hiked rough terrain In speaking with the other persons family they too

    here for a list of useful apps for archaeologists Co ordinate capture field note taking instant uploading of geo tagged photos weather forecasts access to the web and thus journals databases other archaeologists etc and even leveling tripods can all be easily assisted by smart phones right now However their is scope for much much more Practical apps are one thing but more general interactive apps will I think be a big thing in the next few years The National heritage Board of Sweden 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

    Sweden 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

    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 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
