Is your child an adventurer? An explorer? Do they spend enough time in the great outdoors? Would you like the School of Irish Archaeology to visit your child’s school with our Big Dig workshop?
Our aim is to bring The Big Dig to every school in Ireland!
To achieve this goal we need your support to raise just €2,500 which will put our first BIg Dig on wheels - helping to make our workshops accessible to every child in Ireland!
The School of Irish Archaeology is the choice of activity for the curious child. We take pride in introducing children to Ireland's rich culture and heritage through interactive ‘Big Digs', where they get a hands-on experience of a real archaeological site.
We will have just 60 days to reach our goal once the campaign goes live. So please like & share this post widely so that your local school can benefit too.
Those who give generously will be rewarded with fantastic rewards, including free admission to our action packed and highly educational camps!

Risks and challenges
Currently our Big Dig workshops require on site replication and dismantling of the remains of a Viking house (as found in the archaeological record). This greatly limits the amount of schools and venues to which we can transport this large scale workshop.
This, our first project, will put one of our workshops on wheels - making it highly transportable - eliminating the need for on site building/dismantling, and creating more time for learning and fun!
Your support will bring us closer to achieving this goal.
Our partners in education understand the value that the School of Irish Archaeology brings to their pupils, and the positive and long-term impact that this unique educational experience offers. That's why we say SIA explores the past with our future. . .
So dig deep and help us to educate the next generation.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
