This M.Litt. thesis concerns the Mesolithic and Mesolithic-Neolithic transition in the west of Ireland. After discussing the history of research concerning the Stone Age in Ireland, and in particular in the west, this thesis then considers the evidence for the Mesolithic and Mesolithic-Neolithic transition in Ireland. Attention is then turned to discussing the approaches used by researchers concerning landscape and social archaeology, and how such approaches will be used in this thesis. This is followed by a detailed description and discussion of the fieldwalking programmes and museum research, where each locale will be dealt with individually. This thesis will then discuss how we can understand the evidence in terms of a social archaeology of the period.
