New Survey of Clare Island

Volume 5: Archaeology

Edited by: Paul Gosling, Conleth Manning, John Waddell

Volume 5 of the New Survey of Clare Island is a detailed account of the archaeology of this mountainous island guarding the entrance to Clew Bay in County Mayo, Ireland. This volume presents the results of a detailed archaeological survey of the island and a series of complimentary archaeological excavations. These results are coupled with comprehensive overviews involving the analysis of the archaeology, history, and settlement patterns of the island community from c.4,000 BC to AD 1900. The book is an important in-depth archaeological survey in which many new sites have been identified and documented since the original survey of 1909-11. Thus, it provides a better understanding of the settlement history of the island.
