Dave Pollock

Before moving to Ireland in the 1990s I produced a small guide for visitors to the ruined priory at Whithorn, with line drawings and text on card.

I put together a souvenir booklet for the Whithorn Trust, on the ongoing excavations. The first booklet was half in colour, and the second entirely in colour. 

In Ireland I have put work into the Cahir Castle (Co. Tipperary) souvenir guide, and the Barryscourt Castle (Co. Cork) and Scattery Island (Co. Clare) leaflets, all for the National Monuments Service, OPW. I recently (2011) updated indoor displays at Jerpoint Abbey (Co. Kilkenny), Ferns Castle and Tintern Abbey (both Co. Wexford), for the National Monuments Service, OPW.

Medieval Waterford - Coming Soon

"Medieval Waterford, above and below ground" is almost finished. The last eyes are being crossed and teas dotted. The booklet has the same format as "Medieval Dungarvan" but the pictures are all new.

I am grateful to a number of archaeologists who have worked in the city, particularly Maurice Hurley, Orla Scully,  Joanna Wren and Ben Murtagh, for their help and encouragement.

I hope to have the guide on sale in the city before the end of the summer, for €8.50 a copy.

About Us

We are both on the list of archaeologists eligible for excavation licences. Every archaeological excavation in Ireland needs a licence, issued jointly by the National Monuments Service and the National Museum.

Archaeological Illustration

We illustrate our own reports, and integrate the drawings into the text rather than add them to the end. We draw finds and offer an illustration service to produce publication drawings from site records and objects.

Archaeological Fieldwork

Most of our fieldwork (excavation and survey) is carried out during archaeological impact assessments, or as a follow up, monitoring or investigating areas at risk of being disturbed.

In Ireland I have put work into the Cahir Castle (Co. Tipperary) souvenir guide, and the Barryscourt Castle (Co. Cork) and Scattery Island (Co. Clare) leaflets, all for the National Monuments Service, OPW.
