Prof Michael Herity Memorial Lecture at Rathcroghan, Tulsk

Project PI Jessica (unofficially!) launched the Passage Tomb Project last Friday 24th August during Heritage Week at the Rathcroghan Visitor Centre, Tulsk, Co. Roscommon. She was invited to give the 3rd Annual Professor Michael Herity Memorial Lecture with a talk entitled ‘Passage Tomb People: seeking the monument builders‘.

Professor Herity (1929 – 2016) was a renowned archaeologist and Professor Emeritus in the School – then Department – of Archaeology at UCD. He had very wide-ranging research interests spanning the Neolithic to medieval periods, publishing in 1974 the book ‘Irish Passage Graves‘ (essential reading for our project!).
