Working as an archaeologist article in the Irish Examiner
On the 16th of December the fourth in a series of five monthly articles complementing the ‘Time in Transition — It’s about Time 2’ programme was published by the Irish Examiner. This article, which can be accessed here, focuses on 'Working as an Archaeologist' and it aims to give a better understanding of what archaeologists do and how archaeological research informs us about our past. This is part of the Archaeology at Work Theme within the resource for the Transition Year Option (see Theme 3, Units 1-4) which can be accessed via the homepage on this site. Check out the following websites which complement the ‘Working as an Archaeologist’ article in the Irish Examiner (Monday 16th December)
