As the massive sheets of ice receded and the Ice Age came to an end, the warming trend allowed a rehabitation of Northern Europe. Between 8000 and 7000BCE the first human settlers arrived in Ireland from Scotland. Taking Ireland's first human colonisation as its starting point, Discovering Ancient Ireland leads us on a journey through the vast, enigmatic landscape of prehistoric Ireland.

In Discovering Ancient Ireland Kelli Malone distinguishes the various significant periods in Irish Prehistory and discusses the life and culture of the people who left their marks on the landscape. The reader is introduced to the farming methods, the defence mechanisms, the hierarchy structures, the art and the beliefs of our Prehistoric ancestors. Each period is presented with its most important archaeological sites, such as the Boyne Valley, Dun Aenghus, and the Hill of Tara. The sites are accompanied by photographs from the author's collection.

Ireland's prehistoric structures have an enduring attraction that has engaged the imagination of so many who come to study and admire these monuments. This book is a clear and accessible guide to the prehistoric landscape of the island, which will enrich anybody's experience of ancient Ireland.

Kelli Ann Malone is a lecturer in anthropology with a specialist interest in archaeology.
