Worlds in Motion:  Ireland, the Atlantic and Early Colonial America”
Audrey Horning,
College of William and Mary
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 the  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.
