Know Your Locality

A free hybrid (online plus in person field trip) course that will take you step-by-step through the available online sources that will allow you to paint a picture of the geological, archaeological, and historical events that happened close to where you live. While the course will look at examples from throughout Ireland, it will focus on the geology, archaeology and history of  Dún Laoghaire – Rathdown.

The course will be delivered through five online tutorials every Wednesday over five weeks commencing Wednesday 18th October 2023.

We will begin by looking at the very bedrock under your feet, examining the geological processes and glacial events that shaped the landscape and formed the soils. The course then focuses on the impacts of humans on that landscape over time, from pre-history to the last century.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
