As the culmination of a 30-year project of collecting media and research, this website combines traditional academic research methods with modern digital virtual-reality sense-of-place media. It presents an introduction to a selected number (50, and growing) of Irish prehistoric and early-Christian archeological sites with high-resolution VR tours, and enriches the folkloric material with audio and video interviews.
