Introduction to Irish Archaeology
For beginners, and newcomers to Irish archaeology
Introduction to Irish archaeology by Michael Sundermeier,
of Creighton University, Oregon, U.S.A., as background information to a course on Irish literature. It is illustrated with photographs taken by the author,
and there are similar introductions to Irish geology
BallybegVillage.com: An introduction to Irish archaeology, including the
various periods and monument types. Other parts of the site give practical advice on genealogical research.
A brief illustrated introduction to the various phases of Irish archaeology,
from the Mesolithic to the Industrial era. Part of Irish Antiquities, a website devoted to photographs of Irish sites.
Wikipedia on Prehistoric Ireland: This is probably the best place to
start because of the wealth of links. It is the first part of a History of Ireland series, and there are follow-on links here too.
