Professor O’Sullivan lectures at UCD School of Archaeology, University College Dublin. Speaking in advance of his lecture, Professor O’Sullivan said, “Archaeology can be likened to travel to foreign countries, where we go and try to understand cultures and societies very different from our own. The lecture explores how we can reconstruct daily life in early medieval Ireland.

Ruth Taillon, Director of the Centre for Cross Border Studies, commented, “We are delighted to be hosting this event in partnership with the Robinson Library. Professor O’Sullivan’s lecture has given us a fascinating insight into the work of experimental archaeologists, how it illuminates our shared island heritage and in doing so, perhaps a new lens through which to reflect on our diverse relationships and identities in modern Ireland.”
