Carrowkeel to Cambridge: Investigating the Origins of Sligo's Neolithic Ancestors    Dr Robert Hensey &  Pádraig Meehan  
The talk will treat of work that has taken place at the 'Carrowkeel' passage tombs (not 'Carrowmore' as in your email) and has involved a five-person team. Robert and Pádraig were centrally involved with connecting the materials from the 1911 excavation at Carrowkeel to artefacts held in the LCHES in Cambridge, and of course the subsequent and varied analyses on same (incl. aDna, multi-isotope work, radiocarbon dating, osteological investigation). Robert and Pádraig will present initially on the materials in Cambridge and their connections to Sligo, followed by the results of the various analyses. We hope the results, including the aDna on six Neolithic people from Carrowkeel, should be hugely interesting.
