New books just published 2022
Congratulations to our colleagues Prof. Graeme Warren and Dr Annalisa Christie on the publication of their new books!
Prof. Warren's book, Hunter-Gatherer Ireland: Making Connections in an Island World (Oxbow 2022), is a new synthesis of the Irish Mesolithic and summarises 20 years of research into the period. It provides an account of the lives of hunter-gatherers in the deep-time Irish past which foregrounds the connections between people and the things, beings and spirits with which they shared their world. It emphasises the decisions made by hunter-gatherers in the deep time Irish past. Each chapter starts with a detailed account of an individual artefact, feature or excavation.

Dr Christie's book Achaeological Investigations of the Maldives in the Medieval Islamic Period is co-authored with Prof. Anne Haour (University of East Anglia) and is published by Routledge. This book presents the outcomes of the Leverhulme-funded Cowrie shells: An early global commodity project, and has been described by Prof. Michael Feener (Kyoto Univeristy Centre for Southeast Asian Studies & Director of the Maritime Asia Heritage Survey) as a "landmark volume", which "should become the new standard reference for anyone interested in the history of Indian Ocean networks, economic history and Islamic studies".
