Megalithic Passage Tomb Cemetery Discovered in County Meath

Archaeologists have discovered a 5,500-year-old megalithic passage tomb within the Brú na Bóinne World Heritage Site. This has since been described as the “find of a lifetime” by all involved in its discovery.

Research by agri-technology (use of technology in agriculture – according to google) company Devenish and UCD School of Archaeology unearthed a cemetery beside Dowth Hall in County Meath.

To date, two burial chambers have been discovered in the western part of the main passage tomb, where a large stone (40m in diameter) is raised.

The six kerbstones have been identified so far, appear to have been part of a ring of stones that followed the cairn perimeter. One kerbstone is heavily decorated with Neolithic carvings (which was seen on the RTE News last night) and represents one of the most impressive discoveries of megalithic art in Ireland over the past decades.
