Projects in the Ring of Gullion

Built heritage surveys

The built heritage surveys will involve workshops on how to carry out remote sensing, field walking surveys, identify features in the landscape, aerial drones, and how to use video equipment to interpret the landscape and compare these with ground level sightings. There will be a chance to be part of community digs too.
