The study of Ireland’s post-1550 archaeology and history has developed considerably in recent years. Traditionally, the archaeology of this period in Ireland was poorly understood and often underrepresented or simply ignored in excavation reports. In recent years, however, there has been a growing understanding of the need to study post-medieval archaeology if we are to understand the profound changes that affected Ireland throughout this period. These cultural, social and economic changes were primarily the result of the transfer of land ownership to new landlords and the settling of that land by immigrants, who came mainly from England and Scotland. The examination of post-medieval archaeology can help us to gain an insight into how the native Irish and Old English, who were descended from the Anglo-Normans, interacted with these new landlords and settlers, and how they adapted as their familiar landscape was profoundly altered.
