Ulster was a place apart, it has been said. Its long-standing connections with Scotland, and indeed its proximity to the north of England and the west of Scotland, have meant that east Ulster was constantly open to traffic in people, ideas, and technologies from outside. It also opened outwards towards western Europe, the British Empire and the Atlantic world. In other respects, Ulster is part and parcel of a patchwork of regions that constituted the British and Irish Isles. As such it was subject to many of the same forces making for social change in relation to religion, language, the status of women, and the living standards of the people.

Keywords:   Ulster, Scotland, British Empire, Atlantic World, place apart, women, economy, population, urbanisation, plantation
