The Bective Abbey research excavation is what the Co-Director of the site, Dr Geraldine Stout refers to as ‘Slow’ archaeology. This low-tech traditional excavation is a million miles away from the TV’s Time Team and is in many ways as much a social experiment as it is research project. This series will allow the listener to join in on the discovery of new things about Bective Abbey and it’s surroundings; learn alongside the site’s student volunteers; take a visit to and hear from the experts showcasing many of Meath’s Heritage sites, and most of all listen in on the hard-earned tea breaks, end-of-day pints and on-site ‘craic’.

A major aspect of the Bective Abbey Project is educating third level student about traditional and more modern archaeological practices. This episode will include portion of lectures from various specialists brought in to lend their knowledge to the various discoveries on the site. We will hear from experts such as the ‘bone woman’, about what the items discovered on the site tell us about the lives of the monks who once lived in Bective Abbey. 

This podcast is an action of the County Meath
