Life and Death in Medieval Gaelic Ireland by Catriona McKenzie Book PDF Summary

In 2003, the skeletal remains of some 1,300 individuals--men, women and children--were uncovered from Ballyhanna, near Ballyshannon in Co. Donegal. Radiocarbon dating indicates that the cemetery was in use for a prolonged period from the 7th to the 17th century. The remains of all individuals were the subject of detailed osteological and palaeopathological analysis. This book contextualizes the results of the research, including a wealth of information revealing the health, diet and lifestyle of the people buried at Ballyhanna. The analysis represents the first comprehensive study of a skeletal population from medieval Gaelic Ireland and provides detailed insights concerning the hitherto largely invisible lower class of Gaelic society.
