Niall Kenny and Brian Dolan are conducting charcoal production experimental archaeology over a number of days, from Sunday 17th to Wednesday 20th of January, on a farm just outside Enfield, in Co. Meath. They hope to produce charcoal in the traditional manner - as it would have been made in early medieval times. They plan to dig, fire and control a charcoal production in a pit kiln excavated on an archaeology site in recent years. Brian is currently undertaking a PhD on early medieval ironworking in UCD and hopes to use the charcoal produced in this experiment in an experimental iron smelt he plans to carry out in Ferrycarrig in March.
They invite any interested persons to join them. Contact Niall Kenny at email@example.com. Further details are available on the following link http://charcoal.seandalaiocht.com.
