Irish Archaeology Field School (IAFS) Forensic Anthropology Course

The Irish Archaeology Field School (IAFS) provides third level training in heritage based studies to a number of university partners (see for more detail). This year the IAFS are launching an exciting new forensic anthropology course (see here) in partnership with Maynooth University and the Irish National Heritage Park. This week long course will run twice, starting March 11th and June 10th and carries 7.5 ECTS credits (awarded by Maynooth University).

The program will be taught from the site of Carrick Castle (and settlement), the first Norman Castle in Ireland, constructed in 1169. The castle site is located within the stunning confines of the Irish National Heritage Park in Wexford, southeast Ireland, a 40 acre parkland featuring the largest open air museum in Ireland. The course is particularly suitable for any students with an interest in osteoarchaeology and physical/forensic anthropology but may also appeal to a wide range of backgrounds including archaeology, history, anthropology, medieval studies – or just students looking for a unique study abroad experience in general. The program will include students of all ages and nationalities.
