Brú na Bóinne

Better Viewing Large On Black

 

Neolithic burial mound, Newgrange, County Meath (near Dublin), Ireland

 

The foremost example of Stone Age Irish art namely, the Newgrange megalithic tomb, is a World Heritage Site of over 5000 years old. With its elaborate Celtic decorative arts, it is part of the Brú na Bóinne prehistoric complex built 500 years before the Great Egyptian Pyramid of Giza in about 3200 BCE.

Megalithic art experts calculate it took a workforce of 300, about 20 years to complete.
