Managing Irish Archaeology: Threats, Challenges and Discovery
Thursday, 21 March 2019, 5 – 6pm
A lecture by by Michael MacDonagh, Chief Archaeologist at the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
We have witnessed record damage to historic monuments in recent years, with a primary cause being climate change-related weather extremes. While rising sea levels destroy coastal sites, increased rainfall results in higher erosion rates, and record-breaking winds cause monumental collapses, are experts doing enough to protect the heritage, culture, and identity of Ireland?
Join us for a public lecture by Michael MacDonagh, Chief Archaeologist at the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, who will discuss the relationship between climate change and heritage and the role of the Department in approaching this.
