DEC 14 The Archaeology Society Christmas Party!

The Sliding Rock

Newcastle Road, Galway, Ireland


We are all seeking that which Indiana Jones is seeking.  Justice.

A pint after a productive semester of studying rock art, wedge tomb distribution, viewshed anaylsis of cairns, strolling elite landscapes, and scratching at the surface of capitalist impositions. That is what I call justice.

Or is it an escape from his father he is seeking?

Escape from family obligations with the ArchSoc Christmas Party!

Or is it the perfect woman?

We can’t help you there, as Helen Mirren can’t make it to the party.

or perhaps just good drink?

Anyway, Sliding Rock at 7 til late on the 14th! Be there, or be one of those people that isn’t committed to building a community around the subject we all love dearly. (You are the worst and I hope your dissertation reflects that)

Yuo can’t afFORD to miss it!

NOV 24 ArchSoc Presents: Sleepy Hollow

NUIG Archaeology Society.

 

ArchSoc Presents: Sleepy Hollow

November 24, 2015, 7:00pm

AC 204

Their heads weren’t found severed. Their heads were not found at all. ArchSoc presents a movie that investigates the clash of science and myth in the struggle for the truth. So basically, it most definitely relates to archaeology. Scarves are a must, and anyone who can get in contact with Christopher Walken, please extend an invite. I heard Johnny Depp is too busy unfortunately, and Christina Ricci can’t make it.
