This monograph begins by examining the history of medieval rural settlement studies in Ireland, and then moves on to consider the subject-matter thematically. The themes considered include the role of castles as country houses and manorial centres, the nature of English peasant settlement in Anglo-Norman manors and the nature of Gaelic settlement in other areas. Strategies for tackling the various questions identified are also considered in detail.
