Earth: The Riches of Clare

The 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.
