Abstract

During the twelfth and thirteenth-centuries, Ireland experienced
a large-scale urbanization movement, initiated as part of the
Anglo-Norman conquest and colonization of the island. As part
of this process, old settlements were re-modelled and promoted;
and an extensive network of new towns were planted across the
Irish medieval landscape.
This dissertation examines the development of this colonial
urbanization movement with particular reference to the urban
planning aspects of the process.
Volume I, considers the origins, influences, and ideals of the
Anglo-Norman town builders, as well as the morphogenetic, spatial
and distributive characteristics of their endeavors. In
addition, the current level of scholarship on the subject is
highlighted and discussed.
Volume II, focuses on a series of typical Anglo-Norman town
foundations, where the origins, plan and burgage development
patterns are explored in depth, through the techniques of plan
and metrological analysis.
