Are you interested in bringing students to Ireland?
The IHS (trading as the Irish Archaeology Field School – IAFS) is Ireland’s leading provider of accredited, field-based archaeological research and training. We offer a suite of programs to individual students, as well as developing customized programs, in all fields of cultural heritage (including archaeology, anthropology, history, geoarchaeology, experimental archaeology, forensic anthropology etc).
Whilst our programs are excavation centred and aimed primarily at students of archaeology, anthropology and forensics, courses are open to all, and are guaranteed to give you an enriching and thoroughly worthwhile study abroad adventure. Ferrycarrig, Co Wexford Our primary excavation site is at Ferrycarrig, Wexford, where we are leading a major research project of the first ever Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland, dating to 1169 AD/CE. The project, ‘Digging the Lost Town of Carrick’ is in partnership with the Irish National Heritage Park, in which the site is also located, a 35 acre outdoor museum explaining Irish history and culture from 10,000 BC to 1169 AD. In addition to our marquee project in Wexford, we have also supported, and continue to support, community and academic research driven projects and student research at a host of locations throughout the country.
