Discovery Programme Reports: No. 7 - North Roscommon in the Later Medieval Period: An Introduction (Dublin, Discovery Programme 2005), 165 ++

This volume is focused on the Roscommon module of the Medieval Rural Settlement Project. This is a preliminary publication mainly examining the issues of sources and methodology. In focusing here on the area of North Roscommon, the Discovery Programme is attempting to advance an aspect of Irish medieval rural settlement studies that has been largely neglected by archaeologists: i.e. the study of the Gaelic lordships in the period after c.1170 AD.
