This thesis concerns the manner in which the monumental remains of earlier human activity within the Irish landscape were perceived and investigated with meaning and value during the early historic period. This period is defined here as comprising the sixth to eleventh centuries AD. That some monuments were regarded as significant during the early historic period is indicated by the prominence which they are accorded in epic literature and topographical lore, their recording in annalistic compilations as the sites of battles and assemblies, and their spatial proximity to - or even incorporation within - ecclesiastical or royal sites.
