Beginning with an assessment of Roman influence, Dr Edwards then discusses the themse of settlement, food and farming, craft and technology, the church and art, concluding with an appraisal of the Viking impact.

The archaeological evidence for the period is also particularly rich and wide-ranging and our knowledge is expanding repidly in the light of modern techniques of survey and excavation.”(Amazon)

″Richard Hall became interested in the Vikings as an undergraduate in Ireland, when he worked on the excavation of Viking-age Dublin and wrote a dissertation updating the catalogue of Viking material from Ireland. His doctoral thesis concerned the towns of the English Danelaw, a topic which required a study of museum collections, excavations and documentary sources for the Viking campaigns and settlement. While working for York Archaeological Trust he directed the five-year campaign of excavation known as ‘the Viking Dig’ on the site in Coppergate, York, where the Jorvik Viking Centre now stands. He was responsible for part of the academic input to the centre’s display and was co-author of the Trust’s Viking Ships exhibition in 1987-8. He lectures widely on the Viking age and has published extensively at all levels. He is now Director of Archaeology at York Archaeological Trust. ″ (Amazon)

Rynne, Technological Change in Anglo-Norman Munster. Rynne, Colin. Technological Change in Anglo-Norman Munster. Kinsale, Barryscourt Trust / Cork County Council / Gandon Editions, 1998. 17 cm x 24 cm. 31 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Signed by the author. [The Barryscourt Lectures III]

Includes for example the following sections: Introduction / Animal Power / Water Power / Wind Power / Grain Milling / Textiles – The Woollen Industry / Mining and Metalworking / Some Conclusions.

″The third in a series of bi-annual lectures delivered at Barryscourt Castle in Co Cork. The Anglo-Norman period in Munster can be characterised as one of remarkable economic growth. Agricultural development was advanced enough to enable the widespread use of water-powered grain mills amongst all levels of early Irish society. On the basis of the archaeological evidence for the use of water power before the Anglo-Norman settlement, Ireland could not be considered a technological backwater in the early medieval period. Yet, while Anglo-Norman settlers would have found that the native Irish were accomplished millwrights, they had their own distinctive contribution to make, laying, as they did, the seeds of future industrial development in Ireland. In this book, the author outlines the extent of Anglo-Norman settlers’ contribution to the development of industrial energy in Ireland, with special reference to the Munster area. A glossary of technical terms is provided in an appendix. “Continuing the excellent series of booklets from the Barryscourt Trust, we have here a clearly written, well-researched and beautifully illustrated paper by one of Ireland’s foremost authorities on medieval and post-medieval technology and industry … The scholar, student and interested reader alike will find this book both informative and accessible.” – Maurice F Hurley, Journal of the Cork Historical and Archaeological Society “The third lecture, by Colin Rynne, is a fine study based on the author’s own extensive research.” – Irish Historical Studies
