Time Team Stuff

One of Lisacul's ring forts. These structures date back to the Iron Age.

Anyone who watched Channel 4’s Time Team will remember how important the “Geofizz” experts were in looking under the surface and suggesting places for Trench One and Trench Two.

Now Roscommon Heritage Group, with part funding from the Heritage Council, are offering people a chance to join in the fun by helping with a geophysical survey of a Crannóg site in Roscommon Town on Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th June from 9am to 5pm, followed by a Ground Penetrating Radar survey on Wednesday 29th June.

If you would like to help on either date, be at Roscommon Castle at 9am. You will (probably) need wellies and rain gear (it’s summer, after all) and a packed lunch.

If you have any queries, or if you’d like to volunteer, please contact Frank Scott on 086 3769455.
