The Discovery Programme: Centre for Archaeology and Innovation Ireland

Strategic archaeological research frameworks workshops

Building on the results of a recent sectoral survey, the Discovery Programme in collaboration with the Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland (IAI) is inviting members of the archaeological and heritage sectors to take part in a half-day in-person workshop to explore and progress the development of an island-wide Strategic Archaeological Research Framework for Ireland.
The following seven workshops will be available to join across the island between February and March 2024:

  • Kilkenny – Rothe House – February 8th
  • Galway – The Harbour Hotel – February 22nd
  • Enniskillen – Enniskillen Castle Museum – February 29th
  • Dublin – The Royal Irish Academy – March 6th
  • Mullingar – Annebrook House Hotel – March 14th
  • *Cork – University College Cork – March 27th
  • Belfast – Ulster Museum – March 28th

These workshops aim to facilitate discussion and thought about the major challenges and opportunities that affect all areas of archaeological practice and research, and to hear what the wider archaeological and heritage sector would like to include in a Strategic Archaeological Research Framework. Engagement within the sector and between practitioners is essential to the building of this Framework, and to help us articulate the value of archaeological research within the sector and beyond.
Participation in these workshops will be recognised as CPD events by IAI, and members are warmly welcome to take part. This initiative is funded by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage: National Monuments Service, and supported by the Heritage Council, and by the Historic Environment Division of the Department for Communities in Northern Ireland
