about this item

In this collection of essays, the authors discuss various types of settlements and land use practices in Medieval Ireland. The essays, taken from the annual Space and Settlement conference over a three year period, demonstrate how these specific practices from this time period differ from contemporary European ones. Influenced by successive invading groups, the local inhabitants created methods and forms of land development unique to Ireland. Among the topics discussed are the evolution and decline of Irish tower houses, the influence of the Vikings on place names, the use of hinterlands as deer and game parks, and specific problems surrounding medieval Irish urbanization. The authors, all professors of Irish history and archaeology, intend these essays to inform as well as to open the specific topics up to further discussion and investigation by their colleagues.
