Below the Surface Lecture Series: ‘Norse Dublin - The Fleet of Norse Dublin around 1000AD’

19th March 2013
Below the Surface Lecture Series: ‘Norse Dublin - The Fleet of Norse Dublin around 1000AD’

#LectureNorseDublin: The next and final monthly held 'Below the Surface' lecture the "Norse Dublin - The Fleet of Norse Dublin around 1000AD" is to be held on Wednesday 3 April (starting 8pm).

The talk to be presented by Professor Poul Holm TCD, who will mark the end of the Below the Surface series which began last November. The unique lecture series has provided the public an opportunity to attend and enjoy in celebrating Ireland's maritime heritage and archaeology.

As usual the talk is to take place on the famine replica ship, the Jeanie Johnston, docked at Custom House Quay in Dublin's city-centre. The venue provides an intimate space ideal for maritime tales, oozing seafaring ambience with the creaking sounds of the hull surrounding the audience.

The talks to date have touched on many aspects of our rich and controversial maritime history, from tales of pirates, queens and lost polar expeditions.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
