Siobhán Doyle, GradCAM PhD Researcher, publishes the article ‘The Bullet in the Brick: The Materiality of Conflict in Museum Objects’ in the March 2019 issue of Arms and Armour.

Through a study of the display of a brick in which is embedded a bullet that is said to have passed through the body of Francis Sheehy Skeffington when he was executed by firing squad during the Easter Rising in Dublin in 1916, the article explores the historical configuration of the brick and analyses its public display in the National Museum of Ireland.
