The story of Ireland's changing landscape begins when the last ice age ended. The fascinating interplay of natural forces and human hands on the landscape, its plants and animals, is described and explained. Early chapters describe how evidence locked within peat bogs and lake sediments has been interpreted and how natural forces shaped the landscape. Over the last 5,000 years, people's activities have had a major influence, such as farming, the Plantations, and the introduction of the potato. Today, Ireland's landscape continues to be influenced by relentless change.
