Eachtra is engaged in The Historic Graves project, that is a community focused, grassroots heritage project where local community groups are trained in low-cost, high-tech field surveys of historic graveyards; also recording their own oral histories.

The EAA conference was a great occasion for dissemination of the Pilot and of INCULTUM as well.
