Can You Excavate It…?


It’s one of our most beautiful historical sites, and we’re hopefully about to find some more of its hidden treasures.

Happening from Monday, November 5th to Friday 9th, there will be an archaelogical excavation at St Crispin’s Cell, and hands and knees are needed.

Here’s the spiel…

The rich history of the past may be unearthed at St. Crispins’s Cell, Rathdown. An archaeological dig is being initiated in this medieval settlement by Greystones Tidy Towns, Redford Park Residents and St. Crispin’s Residents Associations.

Human habitation dating back to early Neolithic period has been detected here. Help is needed from volunteers to get further knowledge of our common past. Excavation will take place Monday 5th November to Friday 9th November 2018. Mornings from 9.30am to 1pm; Afternoons from 2pm to 4.30pm.

The minimum contribution is one half day, and no prior experience is needed. If you think you can help, please contact Marie Burbridge on 0872511717 or marieburbridge@icloud.com or Frank ‘Chuckles’ Coyne on 0863855918 or frankpcoyne@gmail.com.
