In July 2006, a highly significant archaeological discovery was made in a bog at Faddan More, Co. Tipperary. The remains of an illuminated manuscript from the early medieval period, along with its leather cover, were discovered by chance during turf-cutting operations. The find made international headlines and today represents one of the National Museum of Ireland's top ten treasures. This book charts the complex and challenging conservation process and the results of a decade of research that followed, including exciting discoveries made along the way.

It is the first insular manuscript to be discovered in over 200 years and the first ever retrieved from a wetland environment. The discovery presented many challenges-archaeological, art-historical, and paleographical - and required innovative approaches to its conservation. This book charts the complex and challenging conservation process and the results of a decade of research that followed.
