I was at the UCD Images of Research awards last night and was lucky enough to come away with two runner-up prizes. I'm chuffed to even get a mention considering the quality of the entries (you can check out all my entries here). I've used one of my runner-up pics as the new blog header (I will be adding new headers over time as the mood takes me) and the other winner can be found in the gallery above. Its called 'Igniting the gases'. There are a couple of other archaeology-related images in the exhibition, including a few rare photos of glass beads from the Bronze Age hillfort at Rathgall, Co. Wicklow.
