Shell-mounds and limpet-leftovers: debris of the past
In 2021 artist Selma Makela corresponded with me by letter for a while, sending me this fascinating account relating to the island of Inishlacken in County Galway, Ireland and these beautiful "limpet-shell shadows".
Recovered Medieval limpet shells, garden soil, sample bag and grass.
Exploring the relationship between shell remains, archaeological process and the stratified underground environment at Skaill Farm, in particular trench 5.
