A fascinating and informative exhibition opens today at the Linen Hall Library, Belfast. The Plantation of Ulster examines this turbulent period of the northern province's history, including the Nine Years' War, the Flight of the Earls and the legacy of the English and Scottish planters who arrived in the 17th century.
It also marks the donation to the Library of new material by the late R J Hunter, a Plantation expert.
The exhibition runs until the very end of the year and admission is free.
