This invaluable work of reference lists all the major excavated sites and all the major finds, including hoards, which are important to the study of Irish archaeology. Ranging in time from the Mesolithic period to the end of the Medieval era, it provides students and excavators alike with an authoritative overview of their subject.
Ireland is particularly rich in archaeological remains. Newgrange, in County Meath, is perhaps the most famous and best excavated passage tomb in Europe. The country abounds in material both from prehistoric and historical periods, not least in religious sites. In addition to entries on all these, Laurence Flanagan also deals with subjects as diverse as mining, ordnance, standing stones, earthworks and hammers.
