With the authors of A history of Ireland in 100 words, published by the Royal Irish Academy, and archaeologists from UCD’s Centre for Experimental Archaeology & Material Culture.

This collaborative workshop brings to life the everyday objects of medieval Ireland through an exploration of the words used to define them, the texts and stories written about them, and the material evidence from the past that enables us to recreate, understand and experience them in the present.
