Ireland - Archaeological Ensemble of the Bend of the Boyne (2)

Newgrange, Co. Meath is without doubt Ireland's best known prehistoric monument. Dated to around 3200 BC, Newgrange is 1,000 older than Stonehenge and centuries older than the great pyramids of Egypt. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1993 by UNESCO.
