Traces of the Past, an exbibtion on Archaeology, Technology and Imagery was launched by the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Mr Jimmy Deenihan, TD.  The event was attended by archaeologists, surveyors,  Dublin city councillors and members of the public.  The exhibition will run in Wood Quay until June 6th.

The exhibition was designed by Ian McCarthy and Ciaron Fitzpatrick of the Discovery Programme in conjunction with the Discovery Programme surveying team and from images submitted by members of the EU Archaeolandscapes project.

In the opening address of the exhibition the Minister said “I have enormous admiration for the work which these professionals have undertaken and for their predecessors who first exploited the potential of the earliest aerial photography, and prepared the way for the incredible images that form the exhibition.  I believe that use of remote technology will engage and fascinate the public at large through delivering new and exciting visions of our most well-known heritage sites.  This can only assist us in our roles as the guardians and conservers of the monuments which we have been bequeathed”.
