Castles and Fortification in Gaelic Moylurg
The 2017 AIIA Field School will run in early Junefor two weeks. The field school will offer students the experience of working with an archaeological research project that uses a variety of field methods to explore the medieval lordship of Moylurg in north County Roscommon.
In 2017 students will learn the basics of field survey, including field planning and surveying using total stations and GPS systems. They will use a number of geophysical surveying tools, including electrical resistivity, magnetic susceptibility, and geoarchaeological lab studies.
The fees for the 2017 are set at $1800, and cover room, partial board, onsite transportation and equipment. Tuition and college credit are available through Saint Louis University for an additional fee. Airfare and transportation from Dublin to Carrick-on-Shanon, additional travel on weekends, and weekend meals are not included.
Students are housed in nearby holiday homes that include bed linens, laundry facilities, and fully functional kitchens. Students cook meals collectively every evening, and are free on the weekends to journey to Dublin or Galway, which are short bus rides away.
