This is a popular yet authoritative account of Ireland's premier Neolithic tomb. The authors present a synthesis of years of excavation and research at home and abroad; from the detailed reports stemming from the excavations of M.J. O'Kelly to current international debate about its construction and reconstruction. This is the first book on Newgrange to draw on the O'Kellys' private papers and to incorporate the results of more recent and as yet unpublished excavations. This book clarifies many complex issues that have been addressed in widely scattered academic publications, using original illustrations to assist the reader. It places the passage tomb in its broader European context and enriches our understanding of Newgrange's place in world prehistory. Geraldine Stout is the foremost authority on the Brú na Bóinne World Heritage site in which Newgrange lies. Matthew Stout has a life-long engagement with the archaeology of the Boyne Valley.
