A Review of Research Needs in Irish Archaeology (2007)

This report has been produced by the Heritage Council at the invitation of the Minister for the Environment, Heritage & Local Government. The Minister invited Council inter alia to make recommendations to him on research needs in Irish archaeology. Following extensive consultation, this report identifies specific themes as the means by which to prioritise research and address current and relevant research needs. This approach is under-pinned by the wider need to place archaeological research into the context of public access, life-long learning, social inclusion and cultural diversity. The recommendations in this report attempt to address the crisis in which Irish archaeology currently finds itself.
