The Environmental Archaeology in Ireland (EAI) workgroup was formed after a merger of the Irish Archaeobotanical Discussion Group and the Irish Wood Anatomists Association.

The aim of the group is to provide a forum where practitioners of environmental archaeology in Ireland can discuss and share results, promote professional standards, and collaborate together to raise awareness of environmental archaeology amongst non-practitioners.

In this latter capacity, members of our group have previously organised two CPD (Continuous Professional Development) courses about environmental archaeology for the Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland. We are now organising a one-off conference to celebrate the practice of environmental archaeology in Ireland in the past and to debate future directions.

Members of EAI also contribute posts to our Environmental Archaeology in Ireland blog.
