The role of Ireland in the early modern Atlantic has traditionally been characterized as a mere testing ground for British colonial expansion; a stepping stone towards the establishment of colonial America. Such a linear view denies the active role of the ocean itself in knitting together worlds, the complexities and reach of the Gaelic maritime world, and the fundamental ambiguity that underpinned cultural engagements on the island in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Interrogation of archaeological, documentary and cartographic sources exposes the physical manifestations of processes of hybridity and mimesis in the context of Atlantic mobility; processes characterized by dissonance and convergence.
