The Archaeology Society, UCC, is hosting a lecture byDr Brian Lacey, CEO of the Discovery Programme, on the 25th of February in Conn S2 on Western Road at 7pm. The topic of Dr Lacey’s talk will be:

‘The Landscape Archaeology of the Early Medieval Donegal Kingdoms’

The first two, and possibly the first three, genuinely historical individuals claimed, even in an exaggerated sense, as ‘kings of Ireland’ traditionally came from the area of what is now Co. Donegal.  This lecture will seek to show how the combination of historical and archaeological studies can be used to unravel the complex politico-geographies of their local kingdoms during the period AD500-800
