The environmental impact assessment of Cam, Co. Roscommon
Dr. Charles Mount carried out the assessment of an extensive area of pre-modern field systems as part of the EIA for the development of a new quarry at Cam, Co. Roscommon near Athlone. Historical analysis and examination of seventeenth century cartographic material combined with archaeological testing allowed the landscape to be reconstructed and the relative dating of the enclosures to be worked out. The project was subsequently granted planning permission by Roscommon, Co. Council.
