This book brings together the results of excavations carried-out in the county over the last two decades. These more recent excavations have transformed our understanding of previous people in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, over thousands of years. The accounts of these recent excavations have been provided by the archaeologists who carried out the work. The book is divided into four sections that correspond to the four main time periods; Prehistoric, Early Christian, Medieval and Post-Medieval. Before each section is an introduction to the broader archaeological heritage of the county, which provide the reader with the context of these excavations and how their results fit into what was previously known and what we now know about the people who inhabited this area over thousands of years.
