Archaeological Dig

The UCD Department of Archaeology has been running a dig in Glendalough since 2014. Over the last two years they have given volunteers an opportunity to get involved and to help them dig the site. I had initially heard of this Project last year, however, I was unable to take part as all the spaces available had been booked out, so I promised myself that I would try to get involved this year. It was a great experience and I now have even more respect for Archaeologists than I had before. All the Archaeologists were generous with their expertise and had endless patience with the volunteers. They also ran a Big Dig for children.
