Internationaler Buchtitel. In englischer Sprache. Verlag: Royal Irish Academy, 144 Seiten, [GR: 25590 - TB/Geschichte/Sonstiges], [SW: - History - General History], Kartoniert/Broschiert, Klappentext: A vivid study of Valencia Island from the arrival of Stone Age people to the present day, drawing on ten years of intensive field research. 85 illustrations, including colour and black and white photographs. "The development of the island's archaeological record and the changes in the environment are assessed as part of an interwoven pattern... This small area shows in microcosm the archaeological complexity of the surviving evidence built up during the past nine thousand years of land exploitation in Ireland and will provide an excellent model for other research projects. For all those interested in our heritage, whether cultural or environmental, it is essential and rewarding reading." Eoin Grogan, Archaeology Ireland "The work, as one might expect of Frank Mitchell, is imbued with his characteristic enthusiasm...and is rich with his experience, insights and anecdote, as a Quaternary scientist and naturalist."

[EAN: 9780901714787], Neubuch, [PU: Royal Irish Academy, Ireland], History|Europe|Ireland, Nature|General, Science|Environmental Science, Social Science|Archaeology, Language: English Brand New Book. For thousands of years the climate of Valencia Island in County Kerry has favoured the formation of peat. As the bogs expanded and deepened they swallowed up houses, cooking-places and walls of the prehistoric peoples who occupied the island. Early man gradually cut away the dense woodlands that covered the whole island so that by the time of the birth of Christ it was already treeless, and then turned to the bogs for fuel. Today, the peat cuttings reveal traces of the prehistoric walls that have been cut through by the diggers. Tracing through the land and these cuttings, Frank Mitchell has reconstructed in this fully illustrated text the different environments in which these successive island inhabitants lived. The result is a series of vivid pictures of the island from the arrival of the Stone Age people about 6000 years ago to the present day, with a concerned glance at the future. This close study is rich with the author s experience, insights and anecdotes as a Quaternary scientist and naturalist. It is rewarding reading for those interested in cultural or environmental heritage in Ireland, or as a model for similar studies abroad.
