This comprehensive study documents the archaeological richness of the Iveragh Peninsula from the Stone Age to the end of the medieval period.
The survey covers a broad range of archaeological field monuments, over 1,500 sites in all. The vast majority are previously unlisted and are described and categorized in separate chapters. Each chapter features a general introduction to the type of monument dealt with, giving an overview of the current state of knowledge of its origins, purpose and date. The descriptions of many of the sites and monuments are accompanied by drawings, plans, profiles, black-and-white photographs and colour plates, and will prove invaluable to anyone wishing to explore the legacy of man on the wild and rugged landscape of South Kerry.
