Who's who at the conference 26th October

Dr Stefan Bergh from the Dept of Archaeology, NUI, Galway will open session 4 of the conference with his paper entitled 'Meeting at the edge – Turlough Hill as a place of prehistoric assembly'

The extraordinary collection of prehistoric remains on Turlough Hill in the Burren Co. Clare, indicates that this conspicuous mountain had a unique role in the prehistoric landscape of the Burren and beyond.  In this paper it is suggested that the exposed summit was a place for large communal gatherings, and the character and role of these, and their wider implications will be discussed.  The full abstract of Dr Bergh's absorbing discussion, on the role of mountains as places of assembly in prehistory, can be found on our confirmed speakers page.
