Event description

Description

This workshop will bring together practitioners, regulators and interested parties to explore zooarchaeological practice in Ireland today. What are the strengths and expertise? Where are the gaps in knowledge, training, skills and guidelines? What are the challenges in practice? Through a morning of short lectures and interactive discussion, this workshop will assess how we can better support Irish zooarchaeology in the future.

The workshop is being organised by the INSTAR-funded project, “Settlement and Landscape in Later Prehistoric Ireland – Seeing beyond the site” (PIs: Dr Katharina Becker and Dr Ben Gearey, UCC). We are investigating archaeology and landscapes of Late Bronze Age and Iron Age Ireland (1200BC–AD400). We are exploring the economic basis of societies, and identifying agricultural and landuse strategies. The research team is multi-disciplinary, multi-sectoral and international.

Further information (including programme) will soon be available at www.ucd.ie/archaeology/ancientfoods/zooarch

Funding is available to support travel costs for zooarchaeologists within Ireland who wish to participate in the workshop. In advance of the workshop, please contact the project PI, Dr Katherina Becker (katharina.becker@ucc.ie) for details on how to apply for funding.
