Beginning with the earliest Stone Age settlements, she combines new translations of early Gaelic and medieval Latin prayers with original research to chart: - the founding of the abbey in 563AD six centuries of monasticism: - food, lifestyle, work and the pattern of daily prayer architecture, the high crosses and early art - medieval Iona: the nunnery, women's lives, and catering for pilgrims - post Reformation Iona: the rebuilding of the Abbey, the lives of the resident population and what visitors from the 17th century onwards experienced DR ROSEMARY POWER is a historian specialising in Norse and Gaelic studies. She is associate researcher of the National University of Ireland, Galway, and has published academically on Iona.
