An Creagan
Bronze Age Settlement

This event is full, but we are happy to try and organise another.

An Creagán is offering a NEW Living History programme. The visit focuses on daily life in the Bronze Age and uses an experimental archaeology type approach to allow children to have a go at some of the day to day activities, from building a wattle and daub house to cooking a meal. It takes place in the newly created Bronze Age Settlement reconstruction on site at An Creagán. An Educator will be with your group throughout the visit.

Be prepared for the weather as it is mostly outdoors and we usually carry on regardless of rain/snow! Families are welcome to bring a packed lunch or use the coffee shop or restaurant in the centre.
