About this product
- DescriptionThis study examines Middle-Late Bronze Age (c. 1750-600 BC) domestic settlement patterns in Ireland. Recent archaeological investigations have extended the kwledge of habitation, but detailed, systematic attempts have been made to understand the domestic evidence, or to substantially revise the existing models for the development of complex Bronze Age societies. All available data relating to settlements dating to Middle-Late Bronze Age have been collated. An evidence-based chrology for settlement is established for the first time. The data are examined at multiple scales to investigate any spatial or chrological trends in settlement character or distribution. The relationships between settlements and the surrounding environmental and social landscapes are analysed through a GIS. The new data are investigated to see how domestic settlements operated, and if traditional concepts regarding the structure of Bronze Age society can still be upheld. Agent-based modelling and social network analysis provide ather dimension to the discussion regarding power, regionalism, and hierarchy within the settlement network. The results reveal a distinct rise in the visibility, and a rapid adaption, of domestic architecture, which seems to have occurred earlier in Ireland than elsewhere in western and rthern Europe.
