Course Overview

Newgrange in Ireland is a magnificent huge stone and turf mound built 5,200 years ago. Its long interior passage “awakens” at the winter solstice sunrise. Archaeologists now grasp that Newgrange is the centerpiece of a complex of Neolithic treasures. In 2018, another large mound was unearthed nearby, its megaliths highly decorated with 5,000 year-old carvings. A drought revealed earthmarks of immense henges or circles once made of timber. Soon 40 more “monuments” were discovered via geophysical imaging. In 2020, DNA from a bone of a Neolithic male buried inside Newgrange revealed that his parents mated by incest. What more awaits discovery?
