Marginalization Through Management: The Impacts of Irish Nationalism and Cultural Identity on Archaeological Sites and Landscapes

Author(s): Kristina M. Garenani

Year: 2014

Summary

After Ireland gained autonomy in the early 20th century, the desire to reinforce a unified national and cultural identity led (in some instances) to the misrepresentation of archaeological sites, their associated landscapes, and the historical narratives within which they first originated. The ecclesiastical site of Clonmacnoise, County Offaly, Ireland, is one example of how modern nationalism and cultural identity can influence the presentation, preservation, and display of such sites and landscapes.
