ISBN: 9781846824920

The assimilation of the Gaelic Irish lordships into the British State marks the end of medievel Ireland and the beginning of a society more recognizable in modern eyes. A number of native Irish lordships in West and South Offaly, namely Eile Ui Chearbhaill, Delbhna Eathra, Fir Cheall, and Muintir Thadhgain were fundamentally transformed by the imposition of plantation schemes there in 1619 to 1620. This book highlights the importance of regionality in the archaeological study of early modern island, detailing the impact of colonization on local communities as well as the changes wrought by the great cultural movements of the time, namely the Reformation, the counter Reformation and the Renaissance. By reappraising the various categories of secular and non-secular buildings, such as townhouses, fortified houses, farmsteads and churches, this book goes beyond that methodological concerns and explores the extent to which individuals influenced their own social, economic and cultural positions in society, and how the physical and mental worlds of the native and settler communities were challenged and transformed by encounters with each other.
