Achill Archaeological Field School

July 27 - August 8

Our 2020 program will focus on the multi-period archaeological complex at Caraun Point on the northern coast of Achill Island. Caraun Point is a small sand-covered peninsula jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. It is well-known for its rich archaeological remains, including an early medieval enclosure, a children’s burial ground, several shell middens and an early modern village of vernacular houses. In 2019, three drystone houses which date to the Post-Medieval period were excavated.
