PMA recordings were made at Armagh Gaol in 2006 and Maze and Long Kesh in 2007.
Both sites – representative of very different styles and types of prison – influenced the participants’ structuring of remembering and helped trigger their memories.
First constructed in the 1780s and later extended, Armagh Gaol was a typical Victorian prison and held mainly female prisoners until its closure in 1986.
THE MAZE AND LONG KESH
A sprawling prison site made up of the compounds/ cages of Long Kesh, used for internment from 1971, and the H-Blocks or ‘Maze Cellular’, which first opened in 1976.
