Commissioned by the Knockraha Area Historical & Heritage Society, this landscape survey was undertaken by Rubicon Heritage Services Ltd using Landscape of Revolution methodologies. It was the first survey of its type undertaken on an Irish Revolutionary Landscape, and demonstrates the significant potential of this approach.
A post outlining some of the ways in which you can explore your revolutionary past, including extracts from the “Researching Your Revolutionary Past” chapter in Heritage Centenary Sites.
The genesis of what became the Landscapes of Revolution Project came in the early 2000s, when an initial archaeological analysis of the potential archaeology of the 1916 Rising in and around St. Stephen’s Green was conducted. It resulted in a brief article in the Spring 2006 issue of Archaeology Ireland magazine, the first in Ireland to consider the archaeological potential of a site from Ireland’s revolutionary decade. Archaeology Ireland and Wordwell have kindly given permission for the article to be shared on the site; you can read it by clicking on this link.
Written for the Institute for Archaeologists Buildings Group Spring 2013 Newsletter, this article (on pp.27-30) seeks to draw attention to some of the archaeological promise to be found with Ireland’s revolutionary-era archaeology, as well as highlighting similar potential with respect to sites associated with the First and Second World Wars.
