Irish Historic Towns Atlas Bound Vol. 1
This exquisite volume assembles the first six towns of the Irish Historic Towns Atlas, previously published as individual fascicles. Kildare and Kells have their origins in monastic sites, while Carrickfergus and Athlone are part of an extensive network of colonial towns built in the late twelfth century. Bandon exemplifies an early seventeenth century plantation town, while Mullingar is a typical market centre. The topographical history of these towns reflects the cultural identity of Ireland in a particularly colourful way.
