"This is a landmark publication and the volume is replete with numerous maps, graphs and appendices as well as a very comprehensive index. The book's main strength, as touched on above, is that, for the first time, daily life from the perspective of the lower strata in society can be examined in detail." Simon Egan, Peritia Vol. 32, 2021


'Life and death in medieval Gaelic Ireland is a publication dedicated to sharing the knowledge gleaned from a comprehensive study of the Ballyhanna skeletons [...] the interpretations of the results of the various analyses provide a fascinating picture of the lives of the subjects, including factors relating to physical development, possible relationships between individuals, diseases and disorders and how they were treated', Archaeology Ireland (Spring 2019).
