On Saturday 24th of August, as part of Heritage Week, the UCD School of Archaeology and members of the Archaeology Society organised a display of experimental archaeology for the public. A first group fired pots which had been made and let to dry prior to the day. A second group show-cased the techniques of flint-knapping as well as tools which they had produced as part of the Flintknapping experimental group at UCD (e.g. stone axes).

Some photographs of the mock for children are also included (nota: this was not organised by UCD)
