Newgrange - Brú na Bóinne DVD
The Ancient Monuments of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth
DVD takes you on a journey to Ireland's ancient past, to the World Heritage Site of
Brú na Bóinne, County Meath. This is where the River Boyne meanders into a dramatic bend
and the landscape is dominated by the spectacular 5000 year old passage tombs of Newgrange,
Knowth and Dowth.
Since the early 1960s, archaeologists have worked to reveal the mysteries
of these Stone Age monuments. They have found new tombs, rediscovered art and sacred objects
long hidden from view and been amazed at the technical expertise of Stone Age farmers working
with simple tools.
The most astonishing of the 5000-year-old secrets was revealed in 1967. In that year,
Professor M.J. O'Kelly became the first person in modern times to see the Winter Solstice
sunrise at Newgrange. Since then the phenomenon has been celebrated as the world's oldest
known astronomical alignment.
On December 21st 2007, the Office of Public Works recorded
one of the most spectacular of the Winter Solstice sunrises ever witnessed.
This DVD includes images from that day as well as insights into the world of the Megalith Builders.
Price 15.00 Euro including postage worldwide. All Regions DVD, duration 21 minutes.
