Description

This module introduces the student to Post medieval Ireland covering the period between 1600AD and 1925AD, a period that has a detailed historical record to compliment its archaeology. Issues facing the acknowledgement of this field of archaeology and the agencies at the forefront of this work are discussed. The legislative framework governing this period is outlined. Topics covered include settlement archaeology commencing with the plantation period (1550-1650), battlefield archaeology (1700-1900), the archaeology of power and industry (industrial archaeology 1750-1850), the archaeology of parks and gardens (demesne landscapes 1660-1914) as well as its material culture. These aspects are set within the political, social and economic backdrop of the period.

2009 Ireland and Britain in the Atlantic World
ISBN 1905569386 ISBN-13 9781905569380

By focusing first upon Ireland and its relationship with Britain, then broadening out to the Atlantic, the contributors provide a welcome new perspective on the archaeology and material culture of the last 500 years, enabling broader consideration of the commonalities and divergences between Ireland, Britain and the New World. This volume brings together, for the first time, substantive contributions by a range of scholars working in Britain, Ireland and North America. Each brings his or her own individual background, expertise and approach to archaeology of the modern world, orienting the newly developing field of Irish post-medieval archaeology in relation to the more established field of European post-medieval archaeology and the aims of a global historical archaeology. The chapters in this collection constitute significantly revised versions of papers presented at the 2004 Irish Post-Medieval Archaeology Group conference, held in conjunction with the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology in Derry City.
