This book presents the story of man in North-east Tipperary as it is reflected in the great wealth of archaeological monuments to be seen in the barony of Ikerrin. The dramatic contrast in its landscape offers an opportunity to study the factors which determined settlement here from earliest times, while the area’s association with the O’Meaghers from early medieval times links the archaeology to the history of a political unit. Providing the only comprehensive account of the antiquities in this area, the author considers their origin and purpose and discusses the context of the various monument types. Two hundred line drawings and forty eight plates with descriptions of the individual sites illustrate the rich heritage of the Midlands.
