(p.161) 7 Conclusions
Castles and Colonists

Eric Klingelhofer

Manchester University Press

Proto-colonial archaeology of Elizabethan Ireland, particularly in the Irish Republic, has only recently begun, and caution warns against advancing firm conclusions at this stage. Nevertheless, this chapter provides some general observations concerning the twelve-year Elizabethan colonial settlement, or ‘planting’, of Munster, because even limited fieldwork can significantly correct research all too dependent upon insufficient documentation. Munster colonial villages, large and small, attempted to replicate what existed in England: individual house plots, each probably with a small garden or orchard attached, fronted streets and greens at regular intervals. Munster may very well have seen as strong a division between the classes as existed in Tudor England.
