Event description

Description

In 2017, the Friends of the Derry Walls commissioned Queen's University Belfast to review past archaelogical investigations of the Walled City and to produce recommendations for future investigations. Dr Sarah Gormley of QUB School of Archaeology and Palaeoecology is well placed to update us on the latest thinking on the evolution of the Monastic Island of Derry and the Plantation Walled City.

It’s free but we’d love some small donations or other offers of support at the event to help the Friends grow our educational work about the Walls.

On completion of her undergraduate degree, Sarah was employed within the School of Archaeology and Palaeoecology as a researcher and undertook a number of post-excavation and research projects. In 2004 Sarah completed an MPhil degree, with a dissertation on The Phasing and Dating of the Timber Circle Complex, Ballynahatty, Co. Down. Sarah has subsequently undertaken Phase 2 of the Condition and Management Survey of the Archaeological Resource for Northern Ireland, a project which assessed the survival and condition of 1500 sites and monuments. She has directed excavations at St Thomas’ Church, Rathlin Island and St Elizabeth’s Church, Dundonald, Co. Down and has completed landscape and heritage surveys of the Belfast Hills and the Ballygroll prehistoric burial landscape.
