This reference work lists all the major excavated sites and all the major finds, including hoards, which are important to the study of Irish archaeology. The work ranges in time from the mesolithic period to the end of the medieval era and aims to provide an authoritatiove overview of Irish archaeology for excavators, students and the general reader. Ireland is particularly rich in archaeological remains, with Newgrange in County Meath 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, the book also deals with subjects as diverse as mining, ordnance, standing stones, earthworks and hammers.
