Dawn Gooney BA (Hons), MSc, PhD
Osteoarchaeologist | Supervisor
Dawn Gooney has been a professional field archaeologist since graduating from University College Cork in 1999. After working on numerous archaeological projects in Ireland and abroad for a few years, Dawn developed a keen interest in funerary archaeology and archaeothanatology and so returned to university and completed a MSc in Osteoarchaeology in University of Edinburgh in 2006. This led to her involvement in projects in the Orkney Islands and to a PhD in Archaeology which she completed in 2015. Dawn joined Rubicon Heritage in 2015 as field osteoarchaeologist and site supervisor at the Grangegorman Cholera Cemetery, part of the LUAS Cross City works. Since joining the company, Dawn has been involved in a range of both archaeological and osteoarchaeological projects in both Ireland and the UK.
