The Irish Post-Medieval Archaeology Group seeks to promote amongst academics and the general public a greater understanding of Ireland’s post-1550AD archaeology, history and material culture. It also seeks to promote a holistic approach to this material by means of greater co-operation with persons working in related fields of study.

The aims of the group are:


  • To undertake initiatives that will help raise the profile of post-medieval archaeology within Ireland.
  • To foster greater contacts between those individuals engaged in researching the archaeology, history and culture of post- 1550 Ireland.
  • To lobby for increased academic attention to be paid to the post-medieval period within Irish universities.
  • To seek greater protection for post-1700s monuments under National Legislation in Ireland.
