This talk will examine the wealth of archaeological evidence for Ireland’s 20th century conflict which surrounds us today. Using local case studies, it will demonstrate what can be learned from an examination of sites such as safe houses, weapon factories, training areas, prison sites, RIC stations, ambush sites and other such conflict-related locations, and mapping them in the modern landscape. It will also provide advice on how such studies can be undertaken in different areas throughout the island with the participation of local groups. This largely unrecognised archaeological landscape can play a key role in our understanding of aspects of the Revolutionary era, not least the operation of guerrilla warfare.
