Take a trip through time this St. Patrick's Day as the reader explores Eire from ancient times to modern in Michael Jenner's Ireland Through the Ages. Begin with curious neolithic rock formations created by prehistoric inhabitants, foray through vernacular and majestic architecture, and end with the Irish Free State. From the book jacket:

The past in Ireland lives powerfully in the present. An amazing variety of physical remains, bearing the scars and trophies of Ireland's chequered history, tell of bygone personalities, endeavours and events. This beautifully illustrated narrative uses a multitude of these places as stepping stones through the ages to evoke the glory of Ireland's heritage.

Ireland Through the Ages can be found in the North Campus Library at DA 978.2 .J46 1992.
