Simulated Archaeology Dig in Lucan C

The School of Irish Archaeology visited Lucan CC this week with their ‘The Big Dig’ experience.

The Big Dig is a replica of a Viking House and excavation site where students get to explore the Viking world through a simulated archaeology dig.

This site was specially constructed on the grounds of the college and it gave our students the chance to experience the life of an archaeologist by learning how to excavate the remains of a Viking house.

As they dug through the site, our students unearthed Viking treasures and artefacts dating back 1,000 years.

In doing so they learned about the lives of our Viking ancestors as history is brought to life by qualified archaeologists. This educational workshop offered a unique experience that left our students fascinated by our ancient ancestors and eager to learn more.

A big thanks to all the students for their excellent participation, the archaeologists Mark and Frankie from the Irish school of Archaeology for their positive and engaging work with our students, a small and great group of TY students who helped, Parents Association who contributed to its funding and to LCC History department who organised it.
