Students taking the module, LS66 The Cultural Heritage of 'Royal Sites', participated in a field seminar at the Hill of Tara recently. This involved an integrated assessment of the archaeology, history, myth and literature associated with this site. The good weather allowed the students to fully appreciate the commanding views across the central midlands of Ireland from this prominent, but, lowly elevated site.
