Heritage Week kicks off today, and a talk in Kilkenny on the abandoned medieval village of Rindoon is just one great example of what’s on.
So what’s the story of Rindoon?
Built in the first half of the 13th century, the town was the high water mark in the Anglo-Norman’s conquest of Ireland.
This Monday 28 November come join Arch Soc at the College Bar for a festive get together to spread some holiday cheer! There will be music, FREE PIZZA, dancing, the infamous Cards Against Archaeology (patent pending), and an ugly jumper contest for the ages! All this and other shenanigans!
Nollaig Shona Dhuit, God Jul, めりーくりすます, Felicem Diem Nativitatis, عيد ميلاد مجيد, Joyeux Noël, Mele Kalikimaka, Καλά Χριστούγεννα, UKhisimusi omuhle, 聖誕快樂, Gozhqq Keshmish, Feliz Navidad, and Happy Christmas to all!
The Archaeology Society’s next event is a doubleheader! On Monday 14 November Dr Mags Mannion will be giving a talk on glass beads and their place in Medieval life. Afterwards Sue Callaghan will teach a workshop on Paternoster beads where you’ll be able to make your own! Cost is €3 payable to SocsBox.

We are meeting at the Galway City Museum at 3:30pm and then heading to Dock No 1 around 5:15pm
