Carrowkeel to Cambridge: Investigating the Origins of Sligo's Neolithic Ancestors Dr Robert Hensey and Pádraig Meehan
The talk will explore the work that has taken place at the 'Carrowkeel' passage tombs and has involved a five-person team. Pádraig Meehan and Robert Hensey 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). Pádraig and Robert 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. 8pm Friday Jan 25thVenue for all lectures : 8pm Sligo Institute of Technology Education Centre, IT Sligo CampusAll are Welcome but €5 Charge for Non-Members
