Wild Child Poll: Quantitative Survey

Market Research & Economic Evaluation /

This research, commissioned by Heritage Council, was undertaken in order to understand the types of activities that today's adults undertook as children, and the extent to which their own children undertake the same activities today.

An agreed questionnaire was included in the Behaviour & Attitude July 2010 TeleBarometer. TeleBarometer is a nationally representative survey of adults 16+, with quota controls on gender, age, social class, region and area. The fieldwork took place between 20th July and 3rd August 2010.

INSTAR Research Programme: 2 year Review

INSTAR Research Programme: 2 year Review

Built/Urban Heritage & Archaeology /

Prepared by Professor Barry Cunliffe, Emeritus Professor of European Archaeology, University of Oxford.

The INSTAR Programme was set up in 2008 to help realise the potential of Ireland’s archaeological record and to transform understanding of how Irish society has evolved. After two years of operation, this review finds the programme to be a spectacular success and a model form other countries to follow. 

The programme is transforming the very nature of Irish archaeological endeavour by bringing together the academic, regulatory and private sectors to address highly relevant research topics including climate change and landscape and is creating new knowledge and understanding for the academic world and for the

general public alike.
