Review quote

"This fascinating book renews the perspective on Irish prehistory... The book is magnificently illustrated by pictures and sketches; it has a bibliographical and other indices; it is a detailed, wide-ranging and stimulating book for the researcher in Irish prehistory."-"The Journal of Indo-European Studies "There is a vast difference between the view of Irish prehistory that was held half a century ago and the perspective that is presented to us now in this new work. The landscape was, as it were, just discernible in its present form a quarter of a century ago, when the last syntheses were published, but lacked detail. Now we have been supplied with a picture which enables us to find our way around. All students of Irish archaeology will need this book."-"Irish Times "A stimulating book. The authors have examined Irish prehistory from the economic, sociological and artistic viewpoints and have shown the influences which brought about changes in the period. Their work is scholarly and informative, and it will enable the ordinary reader as well as the student to comprehend the vast amount of archaeological work that has been accomplished in Ireland over the last twenty years."-"Irish Press "This detailed and wide-ranging work is the starting place for research into Irish Prehistory."-Michael Ryan, National Museum of Ireland
