Inishowen Development Partnership in Collaboration with Bernician Studies Group /Lands of Éogain Project, are delivering an Inishowen Heritage Autumn School Training course in “Early Medieval Lives and Landscapes” starting October 27 at the office of Inishowen Development Partnership, Buncrana.

While we are targeting young unemployed graduates who have a degree in history or archaeology, we would be keen to offer  places to  young unemployed adults who do not have a degree (18 to 35) who would have and interest in history/archaeology and would like to develop their knowledge of Inishowen History with a view to doing further studies in the future to enhance their careers.

The purpose of the course is to explore the potential for destination tourism on the peninsula and to explore models for community heritage initiatives, further training and involvement in future research programmes in 2016

The programme will be of mixed lectures, workshops and a field trip over four days and will introduce graduate participants to the context and potential of Inishowen’s unique Early Medieval landscape, culture and history.

The focus is on the setting and interpretation of archaeological remains, the resources and power structures of elites and ecclesiastical settlements in the centuries between Patrick (5th century) and the rise of the Cenél Éogain in the 8th century. This is a key period in European history, in which Inishowen plays a significant role.
