Domestic Life in Ireland

Edited by: Elizabeth FitzPatrick, James Kelly

This book explores domestic life in Ireland from the earliest Neolithic settlements through to the tailored housing extensions of the 21st century. Current research, new ideas, and discoveries are brought together with a clear and compelling introduction by historian Toby Barnard. Twenty scholars from multi-disciplinary backgrounds look at design, decoration, material goods, the changing fashion, rituals, superstitions of daily life, and the varous social classes - rural/urban, male/female, rich/poor. Domestic Life in Ireland offers fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in Ireland's past.
