Editorial Reviews


The densest concentration of wedge tombs is on the Burren in County Clare... is part of what makes the Burren such a very special landscape. -- Archaeology Ireland, Oct. 1999

The rich archaeological heritage of the Burren has provided the basis for the latest publication from the Clare Local Studies Project. -- Clare Champion, July 16, 1999

The typesetting is scrupulous and intelligent, the reproduction good, the design from jacket and endpapers to every last detail very satisfactory -- Books Ireland, Sep. 1999

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

From Chapter 4: The key to the study of the ring forts is held by Ireland. Her cahers from their excellent preservation, and because the features of the earth forts have perished, tell their story with unusual clearness. Outside of Ireland it is rare to find a fort retaining its walls, terraces, gateways, huts, and souterrains, or to find any literature contemporary with, and descriptive of, the forts . . . The central group of these forts again lies in the Burren and its borders, and the fact that they have not been restored, gives them a value even above the magnificent duns in Aran, or some of the most interesting on the slopes of Mount Eagle round Fahan, as unaltered ancient buildings.
