Welcome to therjhuntercollection.com

This website has been created in memory of a much loved and highly respected historian of Early Modern Ireland. Robert (affectionately known as Bob) Hunter specialised in the history of the early 1600s, the period of the Ulster Plantation, and was particularly interested in the contribution of the English to the shaping of the province during this era.

This website will tell you more about R.J. Hunter and of the work of the Committee that was established by his daughter Laura in his memory.
