Archaeology is a broad term that includes archaeological sites, artefacts, and field monuments. Our archaeological heritage in Wicklow is rich and varied and reflects the influence of man on the landscape from prehistoric times to present.

As part of the objective to increase awareness and appreciation of our heritage in the Heritage Office has co-ordinated the production of the following publications. These publications are available free of charge to schools and interested individuals upon request.
