    DescriptionThis essential pocket guide to the principal national and historic monuments in Ireland, North and South, is written by Peter Harbison, the most respected authority on the subject. He examines about 50 of the most significant monuments under a representative variety of headings: passage-graves, dolmens, stone circles, monasteries, round towers, high crosses, abbeys, priories and cathedrals, town walls and earthen fortifications. 'Ancient Irish Monuments' is written with the mixture of authority and lightness of touch that distinguishes all of Dr Harbison's work.
