The Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland: Formerly the Royal Historical and Archaeological Association of Ireland (Classic Reprint) by Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland: Formerly the Royal Historical and Archaeological Association of Ireland This, the fiftieth year of the Society's existence, has been one of continued prosperity and progress, and also of very considerable activity in the different departments of the Society's work. In branch has more been accomplished than in the publications of the Society for the year. The production of a Volume for each successive year has t inaptly been compared to the building up of a cairn commemorative of the progress of the Society, marking its onward path in an increasing sphere of usefulness. The builders of the cairn are t alone the contributors to the Volume; every Member of the Society who has contributed to its funds, may fairly claim, with some degree of honest pride, that he or she has helped to raise the pile. In the Volume thus dedicated to the Members, the work dealing with the Primaeval period opens with The Dun at Dorsey, Co. Armagh, followed by others, comprising The Prehistoric Remains in Burren, Co. Clare. In Prehistoric Art, Mr. Coffey's Paper on Kckmany deserves attention; while as a contribution to the illustration of the Stone Age, Mr. Kwles's Paper on Flint Scrapers is elaborate and exhaustive. Mr. Wakeman's Paper on The Antiquity of Iron will be read with interest. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
