Identifying the Apothecary (Archaeological Report, Kevin St., Dublin)

John Cunningham

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


My contribution to this archaeological report provides a historical context for the find, which consists of the remains of an Dublin apothecary's shop dating from the seventeenth century. I provide an overview of the available sources and some general details on apothecaries and their trade in the city in the early modern period. I focus in particular on the Dutch apothecary and perfumer Jacob Ryckman, who resided close to the relevant site on Kevin St.
