Community Archaeology Ireland is a project of the Cultural Learning Initiative
What is Community Archaeology?
Community archaeology or more accurately community-based archaeology ‘is a relatively new development. Its most important distinguishing characteristic is the relinquishing of at least partial control of a project to the local community’ (Marshall 2002, 211).
In essence it is archaeology by the people for the people.
Community Archaeology Ireland specialises in developing community-based projects through working with and advising individuals and community groups who wish to investigate any aspect of Irish heritage.
