Farming & Archaeology: The Irish Historic Landscape (2006)

This publication provides a guide for farmers on how to recognise and protect important archaeology that may be on their land. Archaeological monuments such as moated sites and ringforts are the former homesteads of previous farming communities. Farming has been a vital force in developing our heritage and modern non-intrusive farming practices continue to preserve and shape our historic landscapes. This valuable legacy is something we should try to understand, cherish and protect for ourselves and for future generations.
