Trowel Vol XVIII Launch – Success!

Success! The AYIA 2016 – 2017 Conference Proceedings have been successfully launched as part of Trowel Vol XVIII!


The AYIA committee want to thank everyone who came to the Trowel Vol XVIII and AYIA Conference Proceedings launch on 26 October after the UCD Archaeology Society’s inaugural lecture by Seamus Caulfield! We are truly honoured to have launched with Trowel during the reception of this historic event.

We want to especially thank the contributors who not only presented their work during their respective conferences but also supplying articles for this publication. Without you, there would not have been proceedings to launch.

Muiris O’Sullivan was kind enough to introduce this year’s volume of Trowel and was particularly nice in his comments regarding the continued effort Trowel editors put into making the publication a success. Muiris was generous in his words regarding the partnership between Trowel and the current committee of the Association of Young Irish Archaeologists in order to publish the conference proceedings, further bringing the archaeological community together.

If you’d like to purchase Trowel Vol XVIII or past volumes email the editors at

The conference proceedings will be made available in due course on our website.

Thank you,


AYIA committee chair
