Abarta Audio Guides – Archaeology and Irish History Audio Books by Abarta Heritage
We have been commissioned by Transport Infrastructure Ireland to produce a series of audio books based on the archaeological discoveries made by archaeologists during survey and excavations in advance of infrastructural projects around the country. These guides often contain fictional chapters, where the life of people in the past has been recreated based on the latest discoveries and historical sources. You can hear about life in Viking Waterford with the Woodstown Audio Book, or hear about the story of Dublin as it was uncovered during the work to create the Luas system. We are proud that our acclaimed series of audio books produced for Transport Infrastructure Ireland have been chosen to form part of the remarkable National collection of the Irish Digital Archive.
We also work to self-commission a series of audio books on various key aspects of Irish history and archaeology. We have started this series with our Story of St Patrick Audio Book. Written by Terry O’Hagan, an archaeologist and expert Patrician scholar, the audio book uses the author’s own translation of Patrick’s writings to help to describe the life and experiences of Ireland’s Patron Saint. We hope to continue this series by working with other scholars to focus on a number of other themes about Irish History, Archaeology, Legend and Folklore. If you would like to support this work please consider purchasing our Patrick audio book to help fund similar future products.
We will continue to work to help people to discover the remarkable stories of Ireland, that are often far more dramatic than any work of fiction.
