Marissa Miller

Supervisor (Trainee)

Marissa Miller is an undergraduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, double majoring in History and Anthropology and minoring in Archaeology. During Achill Field School’s 2017 season, she participated in the excavation of ‘Chromlech Tumulus’ for the six-week program. During the excavation, Marissa worked in an area that turned out to be a ‘fulacht fia’ or burnt mound. Marissa then went on to study for the year at the National University of Ireland-Galway, taking classes in Irish folklore, history, archaeology, and Old Irish. After graduating from UW-Madison, she plans to continue her studies in Ireland in Irish archaeology. Her interests are mainly in historical archaeology with a focus in Later Medieval and Early Modern Ireland. Marissa is looking forward to another great year at the field school as a supervisor for the Keem Bay excavation.
