‘Re-discovering Emain Macha: ritual, religion kingship in Later Prehistoric and Medieval Ireland’ seminar with Dr Patrick Gleeson

Join us for an online evening seminar with Dr Patrick Gleeson of Queen’s University Belfast on his recent work from Emain Macha on Tuesday 12 March at 6.30pm.

This seminar will present new results from large-scale geophysical survey in the Navan Fort landscape and targeted excavation of new parts of the Navan Fort complex itself. The results of this work transform our understanding of the Navan Fort and its wider landscape and regional context. Discoveries to be discussed include new medieval activity, Iron Age and Bronze Age, discoveries that transform our understanding of the site. Preliminary results indicate the identification of some of the largest and most complex monuments identified on the island of Ireland. Results will be contextualised in terms of how these discoveries illuminate the ‘royal sites’ as a group, later prehistoric society, and wider Northern European comparanda more generally.
