Number twenty in the Irish Historic Towns Atlas series, Tuam records the topographical development of a representative selection of Irish towns and cities. This atlas traces the growth and decline of the monastic town of Tuam through its origins as an ecclesiastical centre, to its rise in the twelfth century as a cathedral city, to its development in the eighteenth century as an important trading post in the west of Ireland. The histories of over 700 sites are detailed alongside 20 maps and views presented in large format. This large pack includes a fully searchable CD-ROM.
