The emphasis in this section is on archaeology from earliest times up to the Iron Age. The Iron Age coincides with the blossoming of the Celtic culture.

Much of the physical and social conditions of the early Irish is unknown. Written records only begin to appear with the coming of the Christian monks. The fullest picture can only come from reference to folklore/mythology informed by observation of meagre physical remains.

This section is "Under Excavation"

I'll start with a little information on Promontory Forts.
