Earth: The Riches of Clare
close links between earth, the seasons and agriculture with their influence
on the development of the landscape over the centuries is explored. Geology
and early farming is examined in the first section of the exhibition,
with excavated material from Roughan Hill. The exhibition continues with
a display of later farming and other implements near a reconstructed hearth
scene. The hearth was the centre of storytelling and a Clare folktale
can be heard in this section.
