    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 future of St James s graveyard Share National Monuments Database Major Update 16 07 2010 I just got news of a major update to the archaeology ie national monuments database Some 55 000 summary descriptions of sites have been transferred from the published surveys and inventories and are now accessible online through a map based interface This is a great if often not reliable resource and apparently there is a major update presumably similar to the OSI mapping interface coming early next year All they need to do now is get publishing that grey literature alongside all the summary descriptions Click Read More for full details Share Read More An Introduction to Slag for Archaeologists 14 07 2010 This just popped up on my twitter feed from BAJRjobs Share Two New Dig Blogs From County Meath 12 07 2010 View Archaeology Digs 2010 in a larger map I d like to draw people s attention to the blogs of two ongoing excavations from county Meath One taking place at Bective abbey is in its second year of blogging it was featured in the Irish Times last year and the other based on an excavation in Rossnaree in the Boyne Valley has only been online a matter of weeks You can follow the generally daily updates for a fascinating insight into two ongoing research excavations Sure you could even visit if you manage to drag yourself away from the internet for a few hours Share Archaeological Wallabies on Lambay Island 08 07 2010 Flicking through my photographic archive of generally forgettable snaps I came across a batch from my Masters fieldwork on Lambay Island off the coast of Dublin I spent a week on the Island surveying the flint resources on its beaches for my thesis and along the way got to visit the Lutyens designed castle no photos unfortunately and catch a glimpse of some of the wildlife Wallaby Camouflage Lambay is home to lots of wild birds rabbits deer seals and a little unexpectedly a flock of wallabies These furry creatures are surprisingly difficult to spot despite the fact they are clearly a little out

  • Terry Pratchett: Knight, Iron Smelter, Archaeometallurgist? - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    pay wall here You can click on the image for a bigger more readable version of the clipping To summarise though the well known fantasy author got a knighthood and clearly needed a sword So he decided to make one himself from scratch He enlisted the help of Jake Keen a man well known in the world of archaeometallurgy and managed to smelt enough iron blooms to create a sword He then brought the iron along to a blacksmith an helped him make it The word jealous just doesn t seem adequate to describe my feelings about this Hopefully i ll manage to smelt enough iron to do this myself someday My initial attempt will need to be vastly improved before that happens though The smelting and the sword are mentioned in this article too but I d love to see more info on this story if anyone finds any other links 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

  • Smelt 2010 Video Preview - Seandálaíocht - Irish for Archaeology
    parts horse dung potters clay and sharp sand The mix worked very well and we ended up with no cracks at all in the furnace You can see the hardy volunteers in the background kneeding the sausages of clay in their hands The next video is from near the end of the smelt when we began to burn down the charcoal after about five hours of charging It was getting late at that stage and the light fades until you can only see the glow of the burning charcoal Unfortunately the lack of light meant no time lapse of the removal of the bloom but we do have photos These and other videos and photos will be combined with standard video taken over the course of the weekend into a video report on the smelt which will be made available as soon as its ready I have to thank Mark Gordon for acting as cameraman for the event and volunteering to edit all the footage no small task UPDATE One more video of the opening of one of Niall and Eoin s charcoal pits is available over at charcoal seandalaiocht com Comments Comments are closed What A site about Irish
