Viking Conference and Exhibition Announced





Following the recent discovery of the Longphort of Linn Duachaill at Annagassan, Co. Louth a conference looking at longphort sites in Ireland and comparable sites abroad has been organised.  Themes to be considered will be the role and impact of the longphort in the military and trading activities of the Vikings; the possible role played by such sites in Viking raids on targets outside Ireland and the part, if any played by longphorts in the genesis of the Hiberno-Norse towns.  A guided tour of Linn Duachaill will be arranged for delegates.   Further details in relation to speakers and bookings can be made by contacting Brian Walsh at the County Museum, Dundalk at 042 9392999, or by emailing info@dundalkmuseum.ie.
