County Waterford has an abundance to offer. It promises to be a very interesting and informative talk on the rich heritage of County Waterford as the County is steeped in the most fascinating history and evidence of this lies all around us today in the form of our megalithic tombs, standing stones, ogham stones, ancient forts, harbours and coastal defences.
Dave Pollock, leading Waterford archaeologist will be looking at some of the archaeological remains on the coastal strip, from the megalithic tombs of the earliest farmers to the coastal defences of two thousand years ago, before the days of the Vikings and wondering just how different was the coastal strip from inland Ireland.
Look forward to seeing you there
