Want to be the next Indiana Jones? Clare Museum is holding archaeology workshops for members of the public interested in the science and practice of archaeology on August 27. Previously, these workshops were held for the benefit of transition-year students in local schools.

These are now available at the museum for the general public for the first time and are held in conjunction with the Heritage Office and its goal of raising heritage awareness.

The workshops will be presented by professional archaeologists from TVAS archaeological consultancy and will be of interest to those who are curious about what an archaeologist does, or who are considering archaeology as a career.

Two workshops, one at 10 am and another at 2 pm, will be held on the day at Clare Museum at no charge to the public. Each workshop will last for two and a half hours approximately. However, as space is limited to 12 people per workshop, places must be booked in advance and will be made available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Bookings can be made at claremuseum@clarecoco.ie or telephone 065-6823382.
Director of Service, Clare County Council.
