A key component will be the compilation of a database, and guidelines for the interpretation of burial practices in Ireland in the period under consideration. A further aim will be the production of a blueprint for inter-disciplinary research with the purpose of gaining a sophisticated and comprehensive understanding of Irish society in the early medieval period. To succeed in doing this it will be necessary to disseminate the project’s outcomes through various media including peer-reviewed papers, presentations to archaeological and historical societies, inter-action with the archaeology consultancy community,  academic sectors, and museums, by offering third, fourth and fifth-level courses and producing popular materials.
