This volume is the first in a series building on exciting discoveries made and research taken. It introduces the reader to the environment in which the old monastery stands, old photographs and drawings take us back two centuries, a historian looks at the extent of the lands held by Clonmacnoise, while an archaeologist, argues that the monastic site was in reality a town. The architecture, building history and patronage of the cathedral are discussed, some crosses and cross slabs are definitively examined, and two papers on excavation begin to define the extent of settlement on the ground.
