In this summer study abroad program, students stay in Trim, Ireland while participating in
the excavation of a 13th century Irish friary. Led by English Professor Chelsea Henson and
Anthropology Professor Blair Gibson, students explore historical sites in Dublin and in the
countryside surrounding Trim, including Trinity College, the National Gallery, the National
Museum, Trim Castle, and historical highlights in the Boyne Valley. Students take medieval
city tours of Dublin and Newtown Trim and have time for independent weekend travel. All
students must enroll in two of the following four classes offered by Professors Henson and
Gibson: Survey of British Literature, Introduction to Humanities, Introduction to Archaeology, or Introduction to Cultural Anthropology. Class begins on the ECC campus on June 22, one week prior to departure to Ireland. The cost of the program does not include airfare, class fees, or books.
