avatar(2)The weather in Ireland recently has been dire. The country has seen torrential rain, severe flooding and storms on an unprecedented scale in the last few months. This has left many people wondering what the future holds if this is the start of Climate Change taking effect. Strangely we may find some clues as to what lies ahead in our medieval past, as we are not the first people to experience such challenging weather. In the late 13th & early 14th centuries Ireland was also battered by storms and maligned by poor weather. This podcast takes a look at some of the ways it impacted the medieval world. While society didn’t collapse if the experience of our ancestors is anything to go by our future could be something of a rocky and hungry road!
