Archaeology Research Excavation Grants 2015

The Academy has a long association with the funding of archaeological excavation and field research in Ireland. Since 1970 the RIA Standing Committee for Archaeology (previously the Academy Committee for Archaeology) has administered an annual fund provided by the National Monuments Service (Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht). The fund has financed more than 90 excavations in Ireland, thus enabling scholars to make a substantial contribution to our knowledge of the past. This is the only fund in Ireland supporting independent research excavation.
