Kildare County Council with support from Creative Ireland are hosting a Know Your Locality course in September 2021 which will be run by the Irish Heritage School.
The first workshop includes a summary of the course content and format.
A list of resources/links will be sent to the participants so that they can study their own locality.
Workshops 1-4 will comprise two parts. The first portion of the workshop will focus on a different aspect of geology, the landscape and archaeology, from the formation of Ireland to the arrival of the Anglo-Normans in Ireland. The second will aim to teach a set of online research skills.
Workshop 5 will outline how these skills can be used to make your own submission to the ‘KnowYour5k’ initiative by the Heritage Council and National Museum of Ireland. Gathering these submissions for your county is a key outcome of the course.
The course will be on for five evenings, from 19.00-20.30 on the following dates; Wed 15th Sept, Fri 17th, Wed 22, Fri 24th and Wed 29th.
