Marks of Time


Manus Deery

Derry has undergone much change in the last 1,500 years. This illustrated pictorial tour considers the buildings that have contributed to the city and made it what it is today. Marks of Time contains 150 original coloured line drawings by Manus Deery RIBA, Principal Conservation Architect in the Historic Buildings Unit of the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. The project was a personal contribution to the 2013 UK City of Culture. It has been supported by Derry City Council Heritage and Museum Service, the Honourable the Irish Society and the Inner City Trust.

‘An absolute must for anyone visiting the city and interested in its historic buildings.’

‘Excellent! A concise history of the city as represented by its buildings and architecture. I have lived in Derry all my life but learned much that I didn’t know. Beautifully illustrated throughout by the author in full colour which adds greatly to the text which is easily read yet sufficiently detailed in content to paint a vivid picture of the changing city.’

‘Bright, engaging, historic guide. This is a very interesting book filled with sparkling images and clear in its explanation of how the history of Derry has influenced its buildings.’
