Archaeological Excavation is generally carried out as a last resort as preservation in situ of any archaeological remains discovered is the preferred option. Unfortunately many sites cannot be preserved due to design issues and full archaeological excavation remains the only option by which we can preserve a record of the site. All archaeological excavation in Ireland can only be carried out by professional archaeologists working under licence from the Department of Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht.
