Medieval Irish Buildings, 1100-1600

By Tadhg O'Keeffe

The Irish landscape is dotted with thousands of medieval buildings, most of them in ruins. They are an invaluable resource, individually and collectively, for making sense of medieval Ireland and its people, provided one knows how to read the evidence of their architecture. This book helps the reader make full use of that evidence. It presents a comprehensive and fully referenced account of the cultures of medieval architectural endeavor in Ireland, and it describes and explains in detail the types of medieval building that survive. The book is replete with photographs, plans, and elevation drawings.
