Worlds In Motion: Ireland, the Atlantic, and Early Colonial America (Sat. 17 Mar, 2018 2:00 pm)

Presented by the Archaeological Institute of America - Westchester Society

Speaker: Audrey Horning, College of William and Mary

Saturday, March 17th at 2:00 PM

Early British colonial settlements in Ireland and North America occupied a parallel and overlapping universe, so intimately connected that in the early seventeenth century, the chronicler Fynes Moryson would refer to Ireland as "this famous Island in the Virginian Sea" (Moryson 1605-1617). Drawing from a range of archaeological projects in both North America and Ireland, the lecture will consider the similarities and dissimilarities between the two lands and the cultural entanglements of the early modern Atlantic. Familiar places like Roanoke, Jamestown, and Plymouth will be discussed in light of their lesser known Irish connections, while the long held notion that Ireland served as a model for New World English colonial ventures will be challenged.
