Encounters between peoples
Proceedings of a public seminar on archaeological discoveries on national road schemes, August 2011
Monograph Series No.9
Bernice Kelly, Niall Roycroft and Michael Stanley (eds)
This book, the ninth in the NRA Monograph series is the result of  a  seminar Encounters Between Peoples that took place on 25 August 2011 at the City Wall Space, Wood Quay Venue, Dublin Civic Offices. The seminar sought to investigate contact with other peoples as a driving force behind societal change. Speakers were asked to address a number of questions on this theme, with close reference to archaeological discoveries on road schemes over the last 10 years or so. Can evidence of Ireland’s long history of conquest, colonisation and migration be traced in the archaeological record? How have trade, migration or imported ideas and technologies shaped human communities in our past? When in the past have different peoples shared the island? Speakers also adopted their own perspectives in response to the theme, in addition to those prompted by these questions.
In these proceedings we encounter early prehistoric farming communities in County Wexford, assembly and ritual during the Iron Age in County Meath and the diverse peoples who inhabited a County Tipperary townland over five millennia. Encounters Between Peoples also presents material evidence for interactions between communities of differing religion and ethnicity during the historic period—pagan, Christian, Catholic, Protestant, Irish, Viking, Anglo-Norman, Anglo-Irish, Gaelic-Irish, Old English, New English. Whether native or newcomer, however defined, profound cultural, social and economic change affected all the peoples of Ireland.
