Worlds in Motion: Ireland, the Atlantic, and Early Colonial America
Audrey Horning
 (AIA Joukowsky Lecturer)
 College of William & Mary and Queen’s University Belfast

Early British colonial settlements in Ireland and North America occupied a parallel and overlapping universe, so intimately connected that in the early seventeenth century, the chronicler Fynes Moryson would refer to Ireland as "this famous Island in the Virginian Sea" (Moryson 1605-1617). Drawing from a range of archaeological projects in both North America and Ireland, the lecture will consider similarities and dissimilarities between the two lands and the cultural entanglements of the early modern Atlantic. Familiar places like Roanoke, Jamestown, and Plymouth will be discussed in light of their lesser known Irish connections, while the long-held notion that Ireland served as a model for New World English colonial ventures will be challenged.
