Umha Aois

Gaelic for Bronze Age, Umha Aois is an "ongoing experimental project organised on a volunteer basis by a committee formed of artists & archaeologists. Through research and experimentation we are attempting to rediscover our Bronze Age ancestors' casting methods, and in the process empower the artists involved with unique approaches to working in bronze".  So states their website as we observe members of the group delivering a fascinating demonstration of Bronze Casting here at the Tradional Skills Day in Wicklow's Historic Gaol.
