The Prehistoric Archaeology
of Ireland - John Waddell
On present evidence the human settlement of Ireland commenced some ten thousand
years ago and the prehistoric story thus covers over eight
and a half thousand years. Now in a third edition, this
book provides a chronological account of this long timespan
and, with numerous illustrations, charts the development
of the first hunting and foraging communities, the achievements
of the earliest agriculturalists with their remarkable
megalithic tombs, and the technological advances of the
later bronze – and iron-using societies.
Recent decades have seen some exceptional developments
in the study of the prehistoric archaeology of Ireland.
New discoveries, excavations and research, new theoretical
approaches and the increasing application of radiocarbon
and tree-ring dating techniques have all made an enormous
contribution to the better understanding of this remote
past. As well as being a comprehensive and original review
of the subject, this new edition answers the need for
a detailed introduction to a large body of archaeological
evidence resulting from the explosion of the development-led
archaeology during the so-called ‘Celtic Tiger’ years.
