Abstract

Fish traps are one of the most widespread and enduring features of the maritime landscape. Recent research in Ireland has identified a great number of traps, most of which date from the early to late medieval periods. This paper presents the findings of a recent survey of Lough Swilly in north-western Ireland where a series of fish traps offers new insights into the survival, diversity and role of these sites in the post-medieval period.
