Congratulations to UCD School of Archaeology's Prof Muiris O'Sullivan and Prof Liam Downey, and to Dara Downey, on the launch of their book "Antiquities of Rural Ireland" last night at the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, Dublin. The book, handsomely produced by Wordwell, is based on their series of articles published in Archaeology Ireland down the years (thanks to Dr Sharon Greene for the photograph of Muiris!)
Available from "https://wordwellbooks.com/Antiquities
In 2003 the authors began a series of articles for Archaeology Ireland under the banner ‘Know Your Monuments’. More than 50 articles have now been produced, each devoted to a specific topic, and this book is a compilation of those articles assembled to shed light on Ireland’s agricultural and rural past. It does not pretend to be systematically comprehensive but we hope it will prove to be interesting and eye-opening. The articles attempt to assemble reasonably up-to-date information about the various archaeological traces, supported by images, a summary of diagnostic features and a list of publications where additional information may be sourced. The contributions have proved to be useful for landowners wishing to check on specific features they have encountered, for students or teachers seeking a quick and reliable introduction to specific topics, for archaeologists trying to contextualise discoveries in the field and for dilettantes in providing a miscellany of old reliables and unexpected treats. As some of the articles were originally produced more than ten years ago, we apologise for any resultant omissions.
Many readers will jump directly to those articles that are of specific interest to them and, for that reason each article is preceded by a summary to indicate its contents. For those wishing to read more systematically, the volume is divided into seven thematic sections, each with its own introduction and containing articles that are relevant to the theme as follows:"
Congratulations to Dr Mark Powers, who has just graduated with his PhD from UCD School of Archaeology.
Dr Powers' PhD thesis, supervised by Prof Graeme Warren, was entitled: 'Defining landscape use and activity strategies in the central lowlands of Mesolithic England'.
His thesis explored the relationships between topography, geology, water and wetlands - no longer existing in the claylands district - and hunter-gatherer's choices and strategies over long periods of time. Significantly, it also filled a gap in our knowledge of the human history of the central lowlands of England, previously thought through a lack of archaeological evidence to be largely unoccupied in early prehistory.
Dr Powers is currently a member of the Hunter-Gatherer Research Group at UCD School of Archaeology, and we look forward to hearing more of his work. ... See MoreSee Less
