Industrial Archaeology/Mining heritage conference, 18 – 19 October 2013, Glendalough, Ireland

Industrial Archaeology/Mining heritage conference to be held on 18th and 19th October 2013 in Glendalough, Ireland. Featuring a presentation keynote speech by leading industrial archaeologist, Professor Marilyn Palmer, this exciting two day international conference brings together an exceptional group of speakers from across Ireland, Europe and beyond, providing an opportunity to share experiences of conserving, managing and presenting our historical industrial landscapes, many of which in Ireland are poorly understood and vulnerable.  There is no charge for the conference but a charge to cover refreshments, lunch and dinner.  For more details and bookings see

I hope that some members of WMPT can attend the conference.  If so, I could also arrange some visits to the mines in Glendalough and Avoca before or after the event. Please contact me if you are interested: Martin Critchley
