‘Making a House a Home’: ordinary households in later medieval Ireland 1200 – 1600 AD

Drawing together results from excavations of later medieval houses in Ireland, incorporating contemporary historical and literary sources, my current research project ‘Home is Where the Heart(h) is’ examines how different people in the past organised their houses and what shaped their decisions. It aims to reveal new understanding of medieval people and the things they used in order to ‘make a house a home’.
