This field school is part of a larger research project that examines the archaeology of the 19th century prison on Spike Island, Ireland’s Alcatraz. The prison at Spike Island was tied into the British imperial system of power as in the early years of its operation, it was one of the main holding centers for Irish convicts transported to Australia and to Bermuda. Archaeology provides a means of investigating daily life in the prison and the triangle of relationships between convicts, warders and the institution while also providing a means of investigating the roles of incarceration and transportation within British imperialist systems.
