The Irish Post-Medieval Archaeology Group
The Irish Post-Medieval Archaeology Group (IPMAG) in conjunction with the Group for the Study of Irish Historic Settlement, is holding its 6th Annual Conference on 24th - 26th February 2006 in Boole 1, University College Cork.
The theme for this conference is:
Plantation Ireland: settlement and material culture, c 1550-c. 1700. This conference will serve to highlight the significant role that settlement and materiality has played in the transformation of Irish society. Material culture In the form of artefacts, architecture, grave memorials, as well as documentary sources such as maps, inventories and treatises can provide a perceptive commentary on the lives of people who lived in a society that was undergoing a fundamental change from medieval lordship to capitalism and centralised state authority. Contributions from a multi-disciplinary perspective (archaeology, history and historical geography) will help to realign the study of settlement and material culture as essential to our understanding of how society in Ireland was transformed in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
