New audiobook coming soon!
Welcome to Mullamast – the Story of a Medieval Village. This audiobook tells the story of the remarkable archaeological discoveries made during works in advance of the M9 Motorway in County Kildare, where archaeologists found the remains of a long forgotten medieval village that lay in the shadow of one of Ireland’s ancient royal sites. The excavation at Mullamast revealed important new insights into trade, religion, society and everyday life in medieval Ireland. This audiobook draws on the archaeological information and contemporary history to tell the story of life and death in medieval Ireland.
This audiobook accompanies the publication Colonising a Royal Landscape, the History and Archaeology of a Medieval Village at Mullamast County Kildare by Teresa Bolger. The book will allow you to dig deeper into the remarkable stories of Mullamast and to learn more about the archaeology and history of this important site. You can find details on the publication at tii.ie
