Let it be said at once: this is the type of study of the Mesolithic that we need for all countries, and no one is better suited to provide it for Ireland than Peter Woodman... The book is about the first settlers of Ireland, but it is also a tour de force on the Mesolithic of Norway and southern Scandinavia. * Journal of Irish Archaeology *
One of the most influential and informative volumes on the Mesolithic of Ireland to be published in recent years, this book sets an extremely high standard of research...
