Originally published in 1942, this book was based upon archaeological fieldwork carried out by the Harvard Archaeological Expedition to Ireland from 1932 to 1936. The aim of the Expedition 'was to embody in the field three of the techniques of modern anthropology - physical anthropology, social anthropology and archaeology - directed towards research on the same problem: the origin and development of the races and cultures of Ireland.' Numerous illustrative figures and reference lists are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the prehistory of Ireland, archaeology and anthropology.
