Mountsandel in Coleraine in the north of Ireland is the oldest known site of settlement, with remains of woven huts, stone tools, and food such as berries and hazelnuts being discovered there by archaeologists.The picture after that is very uncertain, but it seems most likely that several small waves of settlers arrived at various subsequent stages.Trapped between this land bridge and the ice sheet to the north, the Irish Sea is filled by melt water that forms a vast lake.
Instead the Celto-Irish helped to hasten the end of Roman control over Britain by constantly raiding the British coastline, capturing slaves and booty.
During the sixth century, Saint Columba followed in the footsteps of the earlier Irish raiders to spread the Celtic Church into Dl Riata (now western Scotland), while in western Wales the Disi settled and helped to form the kingdom of Dyfed.
Ireland was never politically united enough to translate its religious and cultural influence into political power.
The most striking feature of pre-Ptolemy Ireland are legends of the island being divided in half between north and south.
Post-Ptolemy, the four or five kingdoms with which we are familiar began to appear (Connacht, Laigin, Mide, Munster, and Ulaid), but each of these kingdoms were composed of multiple tribes.
