Generations is a book about the lives of people in Cork over the past 10,000 years. These generations have all left some trace on the landscape, as revealed in 114 archaeological excavations on five national road projects. One of the most important discoveries, made near Fermoy, includes traces of the earliest humans to settle in Cork. A house built by one of the first farming communities almost 6,000 years ago was excavated near Ballincollig and part of a Bronze Age 'village' was uncovered near Rathcormac. An exceptional discovery is the 3,500-year-old 'Mitchelstown Face Cup', the oldest known three-dimensional representation of a person in Ireland.
