July 15-19, 2024 | Archaeological Excavation at Caherconnell Project

Archaeological artifacts from Caherconnell in Ireland

The next morning begins your five-day excavation of the Caherconnell Ring Fort. The dig includes all accommodations, transportation to and from the digsite, most meals and specialy curated activities. 

 

Caherconnell is a highly productive site, with a large quantity of ongoing finds made regularly. The 2024 excavation includes excavation work on the third fort to be excavated at the Caherconnell complex. You will be hands-on for the entire five days of this excavation, learning the methods of archaeological excavation and archaeological recording. This will allow all participants to immerse themselves in the excavation, collection and study of everything from artifacts to large landscape features dating from 2200 BC to about 800 AD. And make no mistake-this location is absolutely loaded with both!

Due to the high quality of preservation at Caherconnell (of everything from artefacts to large landscape features), researchers believe that the work being undertaken here in western Ireland can enlighten our understanding of the entire Irish story, far beyond the borders of the Burren.

During your 5-day excavation, your days will consist of:

  • Each day, the group will be picked up at 8am and driven to the dig site where you will meet the archaeologists and begin fieldwork at  Caherconnell. The group will return to the hotel by 5.45pm.

  • Archaeological fieldwork begins at 9am and ends at 5pm each day.

  • All tools for archaeological excavation are provided, along with dedicated on-site training, instruction, and supervision.

  • Mid-morning break of tea, coffee and pastries in addition to lunch and beverages are included each day at the onsite café.

  • This location is within walking distance of a visitor centre, which includes bathrooms and a café.

  • You will also have use of field-school facilities at the centre, which includes a locker for every participant and indoor workspace in the event of heavy rain.

  • The cost of the dig includes funds to support the archaeological fieldwork and research at Caherconnell, including a contribution to artifact conservation, radiocarbon dating. 

Additional activities included during the course of the dig:

  • Private sheepdog demonstration.

  • Private access to a guided tour of the Caherconnell site and farm walk with a view of Galway Bay. 

  • July 16-Visit to Poulnabrone after day of excavation The group will enjoy a tour of Poulnabrone Dolmen. Situated on the high Burren limestone plateau, Poulnabrone Dolmen is one of Ireland’s most iconic archaeological monuments and is the oldest dated megalithic monument in Ireland. Enjoy a fascinating history lesson and some light refreshments here before transferring back to your hotel.

  • July 18-Evening walking tour of The Burren. One of Ireland's most compelling landscapes, the cool grey rock etched with crevices and cracks tumbles down to the wild blue Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy this fascinating walking tour of this enthralling landscape with informative and entertaining commentaries on the geology, flora, archaeology, wildlife and farming of the region, along with some light refreshments before transferring back to your hotel..

  • July19-The group will enjoy a farewell dinner in Ennis at a restaurant/pub with live Irish music.

 

Accommodation: Old Ground Hotel in Ennis

Meals included during the course of the dig: Breakfast, lunch, mid-morning break and drinks included each day. On the first and last days, you will enjoy welcome and farewell dinners. All other days, dinner is on your own. 

Excavation trip ends after breakfast on July 20. 

Travelers can continue on an extended travel itinerary listed below.

What to Bring for the Archaeology Dig

Guided archaeological training in Ireland

You will be working under the supervision of the archaeologists, but the tasks associated with working on an excavation can involve certain risks. Excavation work may involve difficult conditions, uneven terrain (a definite in the Burren!) unanticipated natural hazards, use of digging equipment, and/or strenuous manual labor. (This, too, is a definite in the rocky landscape of this region). A general level of fitness is necessary for excavations, such as walking over uneven ground every day, walking up and down steps and inclines, kneeling, filling and carrying buckets of soil and stones. Most if not all activities will occur outdoors and are subject to the weather. 

The Irish weather is notoriously changeable - rain, wind, sun all in one day; and sometimes even all at once! Generally, though, none of these are too extreme in summer and are easily managed with appropriate clothing.The karst landscape of the Burren provides an uneven surface underfoot so a certain level of care and mobility is required.

 

  • Hiking or work boots

  • Waterproof jacket

  • Waterproof over-trousers

  • Work/gardening gloves (more than one pair)

  • A change of shoes. We change out of work boots when we go inside

  • Sun hat

  • Sunscreen

  • Travel insurance needed

   An interview with Michelle Comber | Archaeologist, The Caherconnell Project

Caherconnell Michelle Comber, archaeologist who heads dig in Ireland
  1. What makes Caherconnell significant?

    It is a multiperiod complex with excellent preservation (and individually intriguing sites within the complex!). It therefore has allowed us to fil in some blanks in the story of the Irish past. It is also an excellent example of academia working with landowners/local community.

  2. What has been most surprising about your discoveries at Caherconnell?

    The complex has an incredibly long time span and it appears to have been continuously used, even throughout centuries of medieval unrest. It’s also become clear to us that the complex is much older than previously thought. There is also an impressive richness to the artefact assemblage, dating from the prehistoric to the medieval.

  3. What are your current research objectives at Caherconnell?

    Our work aims to determine function, date, and relationships of all the sites within the Caherconnell complex. And to trace continuity and change over the millennia of its habitation.

  4. What was the most important or rewarding find at Caherconnell?​
    It’s almost impossible to pick one find from the thousands of artefacts we’ve unearthed over the years. I would say that the discovery of the oldest ink pen in Ireland is hugely significant in that it implies so much about the site and its inhabitants.

This ritualistic ceremony evokes the spirit of healing using many sacred medicines: Palo Santo, Tayta Sayri, Mama Coca, Agua Florida, Condor’s Feathers, Grandfather Puma, Essences and Incenses. Traditional shamans use many pre-hispanic instruments that have no written musical registers, allowing their own essence shine to heal with joy, love, color and life.

______________________

What to Bring:

For the dig, pack comfortable outdoor clothing, hat, sunscreen and thick-soled shoes.

Note: 

The work associated with working on an excavation can involve certain risks. Excavation work may involve difficult conditions, uneven terrain, unanticipated natural hazards, use of equipment, and/or strenuous manual labor. A general level of fitness is necessary for excavations, such as walking short  and long distances, walking up and down steps and inclines, kneeling, lifting buckets, and sitting on the ground. Most if not all activities will occur outdoors, therefore conservation activities may be curtailed in response to weather. 

An interview with Francesca Fernandini | Archaeologist, Cerro de Oro & PUCP

  1. What makes Cerro de Oro significant?
    Cerro de Oro is in the lower Cañete valley. It’s a monumental settlement of over 150 hectares that presents a profuse and intensive occupation that spans over 1000 years. This city was composed of houses, temples, cemeteries and specialized workshops all made out of tall and thick adobe walls, some of them over 10m high.

  2. What has been most surprising about your discoveries at Cerro de Oro?
    In 2013 we excavated a very complex elite tomb. The remains from this tomb were curated and exhibited in the MALI museum. Currently some of these pieces are in exhibition at the Pachacamac Museum.

  3. What are your current research objectives at Cerro de Oro? 
    My research objectives for the next two years include excavating a 1500 year old cemetery located in a ravine at the site in order to study diet, pathologies and the general way of life. In parallel, we are developing a more holistic community oriented research program that includes the community in decision making and in the directions the project takes. 

  4. What was the most important or rewarding find at Cerro de Oro?
    In 2019 we excavated a household that seems to have been oriented towards textile production. This context is allowing us to explore the entire chain of operation behind textile production, from wool and cotton spinning, to weaving with a waist loom. Remains include different tools such as spades, whorls, looms, waist bands, textiles combs, among other remains. 

July 22 | Day 11 | Drive to Pisco + Overflight Nazca Lines + Overnight Lima

Today your private driver will meet you in the lobby for transfer to the Pisco airport.

 

Nazca Lines Overflight

Flying over the Nazca Lines from the airport in Pisco has become become a very popular choice for visitors to Peru, because it allows visitors to save up to 6 hours of travel time compared to traveling to the airport in Nazca. This tour offers the chance to see 12 of the world-famous Nazca Lines from onboard a Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft.


During the flight, the pilots will point out the name of the Nazca Lines in English and Spanish, and provide a chance for passengers on both sides of the craft to have a view of each figure. The duration of the flight is 90 minutes, which includes the time that the airplane flies to and from Nazca, and the time it spends flying over the Nazca Lines.


Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

After lunch your private driver will transfer you back to Lima.
