(Series: Medieval Dublin)

This volume contains reports on a number of important archaeological excavations in the Dublin area in recent years, including the discovery of a medieval property plot at Back Lane, which contained the remains of Hiberno-Norse and Anglo-Norman houses; an investigation of the medieval riverine environment in Temple Bar with vital insights into the depth and course of the Liffey in centuries gone by; and works on the grounds of St. Patrick's Cathedral, which uncovered parts of the medieval nave, including the south wall and original floor. Also of note: a reconsideration of the evidence for Dublin's situation vis-a-vis the road network of ancient Ireland; a discussion of the role of women in Viking-Age Dublin; a reassessment of the significance of a very early comb excavated in Temple Bar, examining its significance for the early settlement of Dublin; an exploration of a little-known literary source for the Battle of Clontarf; and an analysis of the role of Dublin's great Cistercian abbey, St. Mary's in Oxmantown, in the market economy of the Fingal area in particular.
