White Gold – Salt in the Iron Ages, Thursday 17th November, 11.30am

A white gold.
You’re standing on it every day.
It is the only rock eaten by humans.
Some cities exist only because of it.
What could the people living in Poland, Spain, Germany, Austria, France and Britain possibly have in common around 2,500 years ago?
This is a brief look at ‘common’ but fascinating salt, and its implications for an Iron Age economy.

Mícheál Ó Cearbhalláin is a research archaeologist at Sligo IT who plays with soil samples in order to understand how our shared Gaelic ancestors lived their daily lives.
Salt and soil make him happy. Come share his obsessions!!
