about IPEAN


the Irish Palaeoecology and Environmental Archaeology Network

IPEAN is a private initiative which operates through the www.ipean.ie website.

The IPEAN website informs on the value of palaeoenvironmental work, provides a directory of specialists and analyses and acts as a resource with links to courses, seminars, publications, conferences, tender and job advertisements.

IPEAN presents a vehicle to facilitate communication between the different branches of environmental archaeology and palaeoecology and to address common issues across these fields.

The network is open to palaeoecologists and environmental archaeologists working in Ireland or on Irish material with postgraduate qualifications in their fields.
