7 October 2023
Dublin Castle and on-line

Logos for Archaeology Ireland and Department of Housing Local Government and Heritage.

This year the conference theme is about migration – in and out of Ireland. Entitled Imirce: migration and Ireland through timeImirce is the Irish language word for migration, this looks at the evidence for arrival in Ireland, alongside examples of Irish arrivals elsewhere, as a means of exploring and revealing the multiplicity of identities that have contributed—and continue to contribute—to Irish society through time.

We are delighted that one of our students, Ph.D candidate Giselle González García, will present on Archaeological remains of coffee plantations: a history of pre-Famine Irish migration to Cuba
