New Discoveries from Ancient Ireland: The Beaker Phenomenon? Understanding the character and context of social practices in Ireland 2500-2000 BC
27/03/2019 - 27/03/2019 1pm-1:45pm
During the mid-third millennium BC, people across Europe began using an international suite of novel objects typified by distinctive ceramics known as Beaker pottery. Archaeologists have labelled this the Beaker phenomenon, because so many aspects of this have defied explanation including how did this happen? What was the allure of these objects? What did they represent? This talk by Dr Neil Carlin, School of Irish Archaeology, UCD, will explore the adoption of these cultural innovations in Ireland and outline how this helps us to answer these questions. Booking required, please email educationarch@museum.ie or call 01 6486 332. Located in the Kildare Room, Ground Floor. Wheelchair accessible.
