This is the third volume of the comprehensive account of the excavations at Knowth - part of the ancient Brugh na Boinne complex that also includes Dowth and Newgrange. This monograph provides groundbreaking evidence for the use of animal resources in Ireland during the Early Christian period. It presents the latest results of one of the largest assemblages of animal bone recovered from an Irish site, providing an opportunity to review the faunal data recorded from other Early Christian sites in Ireland. A gazetteer summarises this data from more than 30 excavations across the country. The concluding premise of the analysis is that the animal bones demonstrate a fundamental shift in Irish livestock economy from the eighth century AD onwards.

Synopsis:

This volume presents the results of the analysis of the animal bone assemblage from recent excavations of the medieval settlement at Knowth, Co. Meath. The assemblage represents one of the largest excavated to date from this period, and the study therefore provided the opportunity to review the zooarchaeological evidence for Early Christian Ireland and to place the Knowth results in context. The principal conclusion drawn from the analysis is that the evidence from Knowth, along with that from other contemporary sites, shows that there was a major shift in the livestock economy of Ireland from the ninth century AD onwards.

About the Author:

Emily Murray is a Research Fellow in the School of Geography, Archaeology and Palaeoecology at Queen's University Belfast. She is joint author of Excavations at Knowth Vol 3: Knowth and the Zooarchaeology of Early Christian Ireland (2007).
