A special free seminar of the archaeological heritage of Donegal will take place on June 14.

The County Donegal Heritage Office and the Donegal County Museum, in association with the County Donegal Heritage Forum and The Heritage Council will host the seminar on our archaeological heritage the Regional Cultural Centre, Port Road, Letterkenny on Saturday, June 14 from 9am to 2pm.

“The archaeological heritage of County Donegal gives us an insight into past societies and ways-of-life,” explained Joseph Gallagher, Donegal County Council’s Heritage Officer. “Our archaeological heritage also provides part of the fabric of our cultural landscapes and helps to tell the story of our county. Aspects of our archaeological heritage have been lost in recent years whether through lack of awareness, neglect, destruction, insensitive development, landscape change, weathering or erosion. All efforts to conserve our archaeological heritage must be mindful of our obligations under the National Monuments Acts and follow the principles of best conservation practice.”

There is a number of guest speakers lined up to attend the event.
