9781860591143: Irish Round Towers

Irish Round Towers by Roger Stalley is the perfect book on Round Towers, pretty much what you'll find below... There are just over 80 Round Towers in existence in Ireland at the moment, all over the Island. This tells us there must have been a fair few more but 80 is quite a number. they are usually found near Christian sites such as Churches or Monasteries, so we know they came into fruition during the Early Medieval Period. First recordings of them come from the Annals at around 950 AD, with the last reference reported in 1238 AD. Round Towers are free standing structures, built of stone that usually extend t a height of 90 or 100 feet. A doorway was the usual way to enter and that was placed high above ground, probably for defensive reasons, but more importantly, structural reasons.
