A Prehistory of Cork: Public Talks by Dr William O’Brien UCC
Date: Jan-Feb 2019
Place: St Peter's Cork
Tickets: Free of Charge
Early last year, Dr William O’Brien designed a series of lectures with colleagues from UCC called the Origins of Cork. Last year’s series were hugely popular, and looked at a broad selection of historic periods in Cork. We loved hosting the events here in St Peter’s and we are delighted that Dr. O’Brien will be returning here in Jan and Feb 2019 to personally deliver six lectures based on life in early Cork.
Join us in January and February for a series of talks offered free to the public by the Department of Archaeology, University College Cork.
Our illustrated lectures will provide a general introduction to the prehistory of Cork and will discuss objects, monuments and landscapes that date from 8000 years of human settlement prior to the arrival of Christianity in the fifth century AD. The aim is to provide an appreciation of the wealth of prehistoric archaeology in the Cork region, and the opportunities that exist for the public to enjoy this shared heritage.
These one-hour talks will be held at 5.30pm and on the following evenings at St Peters Church, North Main Street:
