Summary
  • Gives account of human settlement from 10,000 years ago to St. Patrick in the fifth century A.D
  • Although Ireland was one of the last corners of Europe to be settled by man, it is particularly rich in prehistoric remains. The great passage tomb of Newgrange, dating to the fourth millennium B.C., has become internationally famous since the discovery of its orientation towards the rising sun at the winter solstice, and excavations at the neighboring tomb of Knowth have given unprecedented insight into the wealth of Irish megalithic art. The technical brilliance and intricate designs of gold and bronze objects from Ireland's more recent prehistoric past amaze and delight modern viewers. During the Iron Age the Irish Celts produced some of the finest works of craftsmanship in the whole corpus of Celtic Art. This book gives a survey of Irish prehistory from the beginnings to St. Patrick's Christianizing mission in the fifth century AD. -- Publisher description
