The book describes the main historical and archaeological sources, key libraries and repositories, accompanied with a description of their maritime archaeological holdings. The guide provides information on maritime archaeology, history, ship & boat technology, ethnography, historical geography, anthropology and art historical studies. ‘Exploring the maritime archaeology of Ireland’ also contains an extensive list of maps and charts of the Irish coast from the thirteenth to the twentieth century, key journals and societies, sources outside the Republic of Ireland, as well as links to online publications, photographic resources, satellite imagery and historic illustrations.
I began my professional career as an archaeologist, studying buildings and maritime archaeology. I soon became fascinated with architectural conservation and how historic buildings, monuments, sites and their materials failed, and what could be done to preserve them. I was educated in TCD, DIT and UCD in Ireland, with additional specialist training in architectural conservation in Venice, Athens and Lisbon. If you would like more information about research, analytical and diagnostic services just drop me an email and I would be happy to talk to you: firstname.lastname@example.org.
