29th ICM Roundup

The 29th ICM was a great event. As organisers we would like to thank all the participants, speakers, chairs and delegates. In particular, we would like to congratulate Margaret Smith (St Louis University). Her paper ‘Kinship and Kingship: Identity and Authority in the Book of Lismore‘, was the winner of the Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Prize for best graduate paper.

A special thank to our team of graduate helpers. Without them, things would not have run nearly as smoothly.

ICM Tour: UCD Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Ancient Technologies

The UCD Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Ancient Technology has offered to bring delegates on a tour of their site on the Belfield campus. This innovative project reconstructs life in the ancient past from roundhouses to firing clay pots. You can read more about it here.

The tour will last an hour and is scheduled for 10am-11am on Friday 3rd July. There are no papers scheduled at that time. If you are interested please email experimental.archaeology@ucd.ie. The pickup point will be the Arts Cafe on the ground floor of the Newman Bldg, the venue of the ICM.
