Our beginner and intermediate archaeology courses provide a solid grounding in archaeology theory and practice, from experts in the discipline. Our accredited  Archaeology Field School Courses are aimed at undergraduate and graduate archaeology and anthropology students.

We have the archaeological experience, a cutting edge research program and the necessary field school infrastructure to provide the best possible hands-on, technical and academic training for students throughout Ireland, the UK, USA and Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the rest of the world. These include our two, four, six or twelve-week accredited courses, which qualify for academic credit from NUI Galway (National University of Ireland).
