Hillforts and History

Read my latest post on the Aran Islands Blog!

In this piece I begin to talk about the history of the Aran forts. They are spectacular sites. Synge spent time in one fort on Inishmaan in particular (Dun Conor). I found the one that I loved the best to be Dun Duchathair - the Black Fort - which has never been excavated. The excavations at Dun Aengus have given us some clues as to what life might have been like for the early Aran Islanders. Check out my post to learn more!
