"The Plantation of Ulster: British settlement in an Irish landscape 1600 - 1670"  by Philip Robinson.

During the reign of James I, an official scheme was drawn up for the 'plantation' of designated areas in west Ulster.  However the actual area settled by the new colonies was much more extensive.

With them came innovation.  A radical transformation of the landscape began.  The spread of market-based rural economy resulted in a quite spectacular growth in urbanisation.  Permanent dwellings of a more sophisticated construction became the norm in many areas, and around the towns new field patterns emerged.  The spread of hedged enclosures heralded innovation in agricultural methods, tools, livestock and systems of land tenure.  In a more abstract sense, the settlers also brought with them new religion;, new language, new surnames and of course a change in political and historical allegiances.  Paperback, 254 Pages. (Added April 2009)
