Description

This wide-ranging book covers the period in Ireland from the closing stages of the Middle Ages to the contemporary period. Its subject matter is the archaeological evidence - landscape, architectural and artefactual - for this 500-year period. The author covers such key topics as the plantations of the later sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the era in the eighteenth century of great Georgian houses and demesnes on the one hand and of penal laws on the other, the nineteenth-century rise of such industries as linen production and mining, the great mid-nineteenth-century famine and its workhouses and abandoned settlements, and the twentieth-century social and cultural revolutions.show more
