Robert Macalister's The Archaeology of Ireland provides a fascinating, illustrated guide to early Irish history. It is pieced together from the many traces that have been left in and on the land - from the tales told about a mysterious ancient race called Tuatha De Danann (People of the Goddess Danu) and the Bronze Age dolmens that bear witness to Galway's pagan past, to the spears, broaches and artefacts that record the influences of a complex heritage.'
