Story Archaeology – Acallam na-nÉces

Chris Thompson and Isolde Carmody are launching “Story Archaeology”, a new approach to Irish mythology combining scholarship with storytelling.  There is a website,, which will host regular fortnightly podcasts, starting on 21st June with “The Story of Sinann”.
Each podcast is accompanied by a series of related stories and articles to enrich the discussions started in the podcasts. The first series of six podcasts concern Mythical Women, beginning with “The Story of Sinann”, which explores the mythical sources of the Shannon river. 
The second series, on Cath Maige Tuired, the Battle of Moytura, will commence in October 2012.
The Story Archaeologists also offer talks, storytelling shows and live discussions; ideal forHeritage Week or a local festival. To celebrate our launch we are happy to offer “expenses only”talks between now and October 2012. Please see our attached leaflet for further details.
For more information or to make a booking, please e-mail Chris and Isolde on  Don’t forget to visit the website, and click “Subscribe” so you never miss a podcast!
