Ancient Ireland

By Linda Tancs

Older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids, Newgrange is a prehistoric monument in County Meath, Ireland. Situated within a bend in the River Boyne, it’s an exceptionally grand passage tomb built during the Neolithic period. Newgrange, together with nearby ancient sites Knowth and Dowth, contain the largest collection of megalithic art in western Europe. Access to the ancient mounds is via the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre.
