Archaeology Above & Below, Ireland’s only annual community archaeology conference, is now in its fifth year. The purpose of this conference is to create a forum for discussion between communities and individuals who wish to interpret the story of the landscapes that we inhabit. This is achieved by a series of talks, and workshops detailing the aims, techniques and results of community-led research throughout Ireland and further afield. Join us this April as we host the presentation and discussion of the work and results of community groups and societies from around Ireland and overseas, with contributions from Waterford, Cavan, Mayo, Donegal, Meath, Westmeath, Dublin, Roscommon and England, among others. A full programme of events can be downloaded at For more information, and to reserve your place, please go to or contact us at 0719639268. Book early to avoid disappointment, as places are limited. Looking forward to seeing you all in April! www/
