Although much has been written on various aspects of the Ulster Plantation, no sustained work on its urban aspects has been undertaken since the research of Robert Hunter. This collection attempts to rectify that lacuna. Topics discussed include poverty and the Irish in urban Ulster, Catholicism and Protestantism in the Ulster towns, the archaeology and geography of urban Ulster as well as studies of administration and life in specific Ulster Plantation towns.
