The Archaeology of 1916

Previous fieldwork by ABH investigated Moore Street. This project aims to assess the other sites associated with the Rising.

The Archaeology of 1916 project kicks off on Tuesday where the project team will be snooping around the North King Street area. One of the principal objectives of the project is to see what survives in physical terms of the urban landscape of 1916. As archaeologists, we’ll be taking a different approach to that taken by historians, where the fabric of the city will constitute our primary source material. We’ll be updating this page on a daily basis as well as our facebook and twitter feeds.
