The UCC Archaeology Department Research Seminar - 'New Developments on Post-Medieval Munster AD 1550-1750' - The Fortified House: A Review

Joe Nunan (Blackwater Archaeology)
This paper aims to identify the developments that have taken place over the past 60 years in the understanding of a specific late medieval building type unique to Ireland, referred to as the ‘fortified house’.  A number of these structures have been subject to archaeological and building surveys including those located in the following regions: Munster, the Midlands, Ulster, Dublin county and Connacht.  Most of the research regarding such structures has emanated from a handful of academics, geographers and archaeologists. The archaeological and building surveys undertaken to date provide a good introduction to this architectural form.
