The exhibition examines  the archaeology of the ancient forts of County Cork. It begins with the great Hillforts of the Bronze Age, dated 1400-800BC. The ringforts of the early medieval period (400-1200AD) are then presented, followed by coastal promontory forts that extend into later medieval times. The information in this exhibition demonstrates  how ancient forts are an important  and vulnerable part of our shared cultural heritage. At a time of intense development of the Irish landscape. These sites re best protected by informing landowners and the public on their historic significance
