In 2014 Rubicon Heritage were commissioned by Cork County Council to undertake an audit of heritage assets owned by the County Council. The audit was intended to assess a wide variety of these properties by providing an overall background/description of the selected sites and identifying the main heritage characteristics and status/functionality of each. We have compiled a series of blogs based on the information gathered during the audit to highlight a number of the selected sites and the amazing archaeology in County Cork. Our next site is Caherduggan Castle.

Risky Business: Managing Risk when dealing with large scale, complex, multi-strand urban developments. Grangegorman, Dublin 7
By James Hession
The development of a new and vibrant campus for Technological University Dublin (formerly D.I.T.) at the site of a former mental hospital in the heart of the city represented a unique project for a variety of reasons.
At just under thirty hectares, the site was one of the largest undeveloped areas within central Dublin and as such was designated a Strategic Development Zone (SDZ). Rubicon Heritage Services Ltd were delighted to be appointed by the Grangegorman Development Agency (GDA) as their archaeological consultants, tasked with managing the cultural heritage assets at the site.

A key goal of archaeology as an industry is making our findings accessible and relevant to the general public, and presenting the results of archaeological projects in ways that bring their story to life and highlight both the similarities and differences between the past and the present.

The recently agreed programme for government includes various commitments to address climate change and increase biodiversity. There is a stated ambition that the renewable energy sources will meet 70% of Ireland’s electricity requirements by 2030. So, we can expect a continuing focus on sustainable energy projects.

As part of works along the N26 Cloongullaun Bridge Realignment Scheme, Co. Mayo, Rubicon Heritage completed the excavation of a large intact burnt mound with two underlying wood lined troughs and associated features. The works were directed by Bruce Sutton, who led a small experienced team of four archaeologists. All works are managed by Mayo County Council National Roads Office and funded by Transport Infrastructure Ireland. Archaeological works were administered by the Project Archaeologist Richard Gillespie, who also completed the initial test-trenching which identified the site in 2019. Ongoing post-excavation works, based on dating, specialist analyses and research will help further interpret the site.
This talk focuses on post-excavation analysis and reporting; what it is, why it needs to be done and why it is a critical part of the archaeological works process.
This talk focuses on construction contracts; how requirements for archaeological services are included within construction contracts and the kind of contract structure used in the commissioning of standalone archaeological works.
This is the fourth talk in our new webinar series. This talk focuses on risk management; how to manage archaeology as a risk item within the lifetime of a construction project.
This talk focuses on archaeological methods and practices; what archaeologists do and how they do it.
