Facilities are available to overseas listeners to ask question via the symposium email address email@example.com. As the programme is compact, only a small proportion of questions will be relayed to the symposium auditorium.
Featuring approximately forty papers by an international group of scholars, the symposium promises to be the most extensive review of the archaeology of Tara undertaken to date. It focuses on the data from the two excavation volumes but extends to a wider consideration of research undertaken at Tara over the past twenty years.
Tara symposium overview (23rd-26th October 2009)
Following the publication by Wordwell of reports on Seán P. Ó Ríordáin’s excavations at the Mound of the Hostages (Muiris O’Sullivan 2005) and Rath of the Synods (Eoin Grogan 200, the UCD School of Archaeology, in association with the John Hume Institute for Global Irish Studies, is hosting a symposium entitled Tara – From the Past to the Future.
Featuring approximately forty papers by an international group of scholars, the symposium promises to be the most extensive review of the archaeology of Tara undertaken to date. It focuses on the data from the two excavation volumes but extends to a wider consideration of research undertaken at Tara over the past twenty years. Themes include:
The archaeology of Tara
* Papers subjecting particular aspects of the archaeology of Tara to detailed scrutiny
* Underlying question: What more can be mined from the archaeological data?
Tara in its local and regional setting
* Contributions examining the locality around Tara and exploring how Tara interacted with its surroundings at various times in the past
* Underlying question: What was the settlement history of the landscape around the Hill of Tara?
Comparative perspectives on Tara
* A variety of speakers examining Tara from the perspective of other iconic places such as Stonehenge and Carnac
* Underlying question: What is the international perspective on Tara?
The significance of Tara through time
* Addressing the distinctive qualities that have set Tara apart from ancient times to the present
* Underlying question: What dynamics have influenced the emergence of the Tara phenomenon?
