TheMoreThis book, published in association with the Group for Irish Historic Settlement and the Agricultural History Society of Ireland, explores the relationship between Irish settlement and agricultural practice from the Neolithic to the 18th century. The types of farming that took place in any particular period of Irish history had a powerful impact on the development of settlement. Interdisciplinary studies in this volume address key periods to illustrate that process: from the spread of Neolithic pastoralism, the very basis of farming on this island- through the medieval focus on tillage, which gave rise to manorial villages and granges- to the 18th-century agricultural revolution and the impact that had on urban and rural landscapes.
