Excavations at Knowth
The ancient burial sites of Knowth, Newgrange and Dowth make up the archaeological complex at Brú na Bóinne, a UNESCO world heritage site which has attracted enormous international interest. George Eogan has been excavating the site at Knowth since 1962 and this is the second major report published in the Academy's Monographs in Archaeology series. The book deals with prehistoric settlement at the site starting with the arrival of people who practised farming there about 4000 years ago and it records important new evidence for settlement.
To mark the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the world renowned Eastern Tomb at Knowth, we are publishing free online our six books on Excavations at Knowth via the Digital Repository of Ireland.
