Get Medieval


This morning.

Aungier Street, Dublin 2

Archaeologists investigating Medieval remains down implements to carry out a day-long strike over ‘historic’ pay claims.

Unite members working for the Irish Archaeological Consultancy (IAC) voted for strike action after a ‘refusal from the company to engage’ over pay , either directly or through the Workplace Relations Commission.

The Aungier Street works have already unearthed the remains of a medieval church, a 12th-century town ditch, and three houses in the “Dutch Billy” style dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries.

The site, bounded by Stephen Street Upper and Great Longford Street, has been earmarked for development into student ‘digs’.

    Archaeologists down tools?
    What if those tools found during old excavations were actually from historic archaeologists doing same?

    Their careers were in ruins anyway…

    What do archaeologists wellies and George Michael have in common?
    They both get sucked off in bogs.

      Awwwwwwww. Poor ole Seoirse Micheál. I was in London recently and I think I walked past the Snappy Snaps he crashed into.

      Yes, this one day strike will have a major detrimental effect on the whole development. The developers may as well just scrap the whole enterprise. Thanks a bunch, aggrieved underpaid workers.
