Deirdre has worked in archaeology, folklore and history in Ireland for nearly 20 years. She discusses Ireland's unique archaeology with the children before focusing in detail on the archaeological sites in close proximity to the school. Guided visits to one or more of these sites are facilitated, if feasible, allowing the children to interact with and learn about the archaeology on their doorstep.

If there are archaeological excavations taking place close by, a visit to the excavation can be incorporated into the field trip. Children are encouraged to think of archaeological sites, not in isolation but as part of the landscape around them, why the site is located where it is. A discussion about the earliest humans in the world and early migration can also be included (for the older age group).)
