Prehistoric Dublin

Prehistoric Dublin

Yes….Ireland has a fantastic Prehistoric history !!!!! Check it out on any Ireland tours.

Because of its physical isolation on the fringe of Europe and following the end of the last Ice Age, Ireland became one of the last countries in Europe to be colonised by humans, who first appeared about 8,000 BC – during the Mesolithic or Middle Stone Age.

The Dublin region was first inhabited, by hunter-gatherers, approximately seven thousand years ago.

The first farmers appeared in the Neolithic, or New Stone Age. These were the first to erect stone monuments and evidence of their cultures survive in the burial cairns on the nearby Dublin Mountains and the Boyne Valley tumuli.

Archaeological excavations east of Dublin Castle, in Suffolk Street, uncovered prehistoric copper axe heads, which suggests long established occupation in the immediate vicinity of the Castle.
