This publication has evolved from a one-day seminar organised by the editors under the joint auspices of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland and the Discovery Programme. The seminar, which took place at the RSAI on 15 April 2005, was the first in a series highlighting new discoveries in Irish archaeology ‘in the light of recent excavations’.

As the sixteen papers in this volume attest, recent archaeological excavations have thrown a great deal of light on the nature of rural settlement in medieval Ireland. They have served to clarify some issues, while also posing some new questions and setting new challenges. It will take some time to absorb, appraise and understand the emerging data, and to assimilate the information into the existing corpus of material relating to the archaeology of rural settlement in medieval Ireland. It is hoped that the present volume will in some way facilitate that process.

The current volume includes papers on many of the sites discussed at the seminar, but it is reinforced by contributions from Christine Baker, Goorik Dehaene, Donal Fallon, Rory McNeary, Cormac McSparron, Hilary Opie, Holger Schweitzer and Brian Shanahan.
