Description

This engaging book traces the history, archaeology, and legends of ancient Ireland from 9000 B.C., when nomadic hunter-gatherers seemed in Ireland at the end of the last Ice Age to 1167 A.D., when a Norman invasion brought the country under regulate of the English crown for the first time. Such a lot of what people today accept as ancient Irish history―Celtic invaders from Euproe turning Ireland into a Celtic nation; St. Patrick driving the snakes from Ireland and converting its people to Christianity―is myth and legend with little basis if truth be told. The truth is more interesting. The Irish, as the authors show, aren’t even Celtic in an archaeological sense. And there were various bishops in Ireland before a British missionary referred to as Patrick arrived. But In Search of Ancient Ireland isn’t simply the story of events from long ago. Across Ireland today are festivals, places, and folk customs that provide a tangible link to events thousands of years past. The authors visit and describe many of these places and festivals, talking to all kinds of historians, scholars, poets, and storytellers in the very settings where history happened. Thus the book may be a journey on the ground to uncover ten thousand years of Irish identity. In Search of Ancient Ireland is the official companion to the three-part PBS documentary series. With 14 black-and-white photos, 6 b&w illustrations, and 1 map.
