The imposition of colonial power and the landscape in the Comeragh Mountains, County Waterford, Ireland (2018)

The aim of the project is to trace, map and analyse landownership in the Comeragh Mountains from the 1600s until the present.  It will investigate the extent to which the development of these physical and cultural boundaries resulted from British colonial authority injustices and how the topography of this marginal, upland landscape contributed to these changes.
