Boats & shipwrecks of Ireland
The authors provide a broad introduction to the archaeology of vessels in Irish waters by reviewing the types of evidence available and presenting a survey of past work in this field. The evidence is examined chronologically, from the prehistoric to the early modern period. It reveals the use of sewn planked boats and Romano-Celtic boats in Irish prehistory, medieval wrecks, and Irish and foreign vessels engaged in trade, piracy, and war after 1400.
