  • WHEN: 10/05/19
  • WHERE: National Museum of Ireland, Archaeology, Kildare Street, Dublin 2

Join us for a Culture Club talk titled ‘Early Bronze Metalworking and the story of the Doonour Mould’, in the National Museum of Ireland, Archaeology, Kildare Street, Dublin 2 on 10th May at 11.30am.

The Doonour stone mould was found by a farmer in 1966 while he was tilling in a field. Today, this mould is recognised as one of the most significant artefacts for early Bronze Age metallurgy in the National Museum’s collections. Sharon Weadick, Assistant Keeper, Irish Antiquities Division, will retell the story of its discovery and explain how it adds to our knowledge and understanding of early Bronze Age metalworking.

Dublin City Council Culture Company’s Culture Club is an exhibition tour by a guide, followed by complimentary tea, coffee and chats. Each Culture Club is FREE, open to all, and lasts approx 2 hours. To join us simply book your place at cultureclub@dublincitycouncilculturecompany.ie.
