Irish Historic Towns Atlas
The Irish Historic Towns Atlas project was established in 1981. The aim of the project is to record the topographical development of a selection of Irish towns both large and small. Each town is published separately as a fascicle or folder and includes a series of maps complemented by a detailed text section.
The Irish Historic Towns Atlas is part of a wider European scheme, with towns atlases containing broadly similar information available for a number of countries. Thus Irish towns can be studied in their European context. Map of European towns atlases
IHTA SEMINAR 2013
The Irish Historic Towns Atlas annual seminar will take place in Academy House, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 on Friday 24 May 2013. It is the second in a set of three annual seminars intended to explore the workings of the Irish Historic Towns Atlas. This series is running from 2012 to 2014 and will compare towns from a chronological and interdisciplinary perspective. This year the focus will be on towns with Anglo-Norman, Gaelic and plantation origins.
The day will culminate with the launch by Professor Rosemary Sweet (University of Leicester) of Maps and texts: exploring the Irish Historic Towns Atlas (edited by H.B. Clarke and Sarah Gearty).
