We are now blogging over on our new website  – I have yet to figure out how to set up a permanent redirect from here, but all future posts will be over there. If anyone has any suggestions as to how you can redirect from here please comment either below or on our new site.

Here’s the link to our new site: or our new website splash page is here:

At the foot of the Splash Page you’ll find a presentation of recent finds. The new resource centre can be found at the menu at the top.

Moore Group is a multi-disciplinary environmental, planning and heritage resource management consultancy located in County Galway, Ireland, providing frank, pragmatic advisory services. Our goal is to provide the best advice to help our clients meet their needs in a sustainable manner.

Moore Marine is Irelands only fully integrated marine archaeological, environmental and hydrographic service provider. We specialise in the provision of services, technical expertise and advice to Private Industry, Institutions and State Bodies regarding impact on and protection of our maritime heritage and environment. Our unique combination of services means we can undertake a wide variety of projects such as Environmental Impact Assessments and Pre and Post Development Assessment of Marine Projects such as Pier and Harbour Developments, Dredging Programmes, Bridge Construction, Pipeline Developments and other Major Infrastructural Schemes.

Moore Marine is Irelands only Health and Safety Authority (HSA) recognised environmental diving contractor. As such we ensure that all dives are undertaken in accordance with current diving operations at work regulations (SI 422/1981). We have over thirty years combined experience in the field and can offer a range of services that are flexible and can be tailored to fit the clients requirements.

One of our principle goals with this blog is to disseminate the results of our work and to inform our stakeholders on archaeological and environmental issues and new knowledge, as well as to, hopefully, sometimes entertain.

What we also hope to do on the blog and with other digital media in the future, is ensure that our work does not end up solely in the ‘gated communities’ of the online journals or media companies. We will publish summary versions of our work and (on occasion) detailed reports and papers.

The resources section contains information on sources, published and unpublished, other internet resources and useful links to other web-based archaeological and environmental sites. Advice on fulfilling your environmental and archaeological responsibilities or planning conditions are also available in the resources section.

Our virtual museum section will showcase some of the aretfactual discoveries we’ve made over the years.

It may be that the format of a blog will become a bit too cluttered over time – so some of this information may be moved over to our website over time.

We invite other colleagues, and interested and informed amateurs to publish suitable material here if they wish.

We also welcome suggestions as to how we can improve this resource.

    I enjoyed seeing the slideshow and reading about the history of the beer discovery. Hope to keep up with the further developments and explorations. What a remarkable find and to know that history repeats itself. And beer is Good!
