The second international field school sponsored by the Columbanus: Life and Legacy Project will take place over two week from 20th October 2014. Once again students from Italy, France and Ireland will participate, this time building on the work of the 2013 field school. Activities will include completion of the geophysical survey and ground-truthing some of the features with test excavation. The field school would not be possible without the help of the Historic Environment Division of the Northern Ireland Environment Agency: Built Heritage and the Fermanagh County Museum.
Proposed is a test trench across part of the enclosure (see above) mapped last year in geophysics. The purpose is to confirm the nature of the feature and, if we are lucky, to get some dating evidence.
