As we approach the 400th anniversary of the official Plantation of Ulster, this volume seeks to make an important historiographical contribution to that event. This edited collection, based largely on the proceedings of two conferences, studies the medieval inheritance and the prelude to Plantation as well as Scottish settlement in Ulster and its longer-term impact in the post-Plantation years.

William P. Kelly is the research projects co-ordinator at the Institute of Ulster Scots Studies, University of Ulster, Magee campus. John R. Young is a senior lecturer in history, University of Strathclyde, Scotland.
