Description

Kerbstone based upon anccient celtic Kerbstones in Knowth & Newgrange in Ireland

Measurements: 8 inches x 3 and 1/2 inches x 2 inches
Weight: 1020 grams

The Newgrange passage-mound sits at the heart of the Boyne valley complex. The structure is composed of 280,000 tons of river rolled stones, and the white granite that makes up the exterior face was transported especially from the coast, 50 miles away.

Surrounded by a stone circle (12 remaining from an estimated original 36), with 97 Kerb-stones, an internal cruciform chamber and corbelled roof, the grandiose scale of the earth-works at Newgrange make it one of the most spectacular of prehistoric monuments in all Europe. The recognition that it provides an accurate means of measuring the solar year (to within a margin of several minutes), is testimony to the prehistoric mind.

Newgrange is currently in the care of Heritage Ireland , and access is by guided tour only.

According to Irish mythology Newgrange was one of the sidhe, or fairy-mounds, where the Tuatha De Danann lived. It was built by the god Dagda, but his son Oengus later tricked him out of it. It is named for the goddess Boann, the mother of Aengus, who is also credited with the creation of the River Boyne.

Newgrange has been radio-carbon dated to around 3,200 BC.

The Kerb-stones - All the mounds in the Boyne valley have kerb-stones, The Newgrange mound is surrounded by 97 granite 'Kerb-stones', with carvings only visible on a few. It has been pointed out that the stones with the most carvings on are also the most significantly astronomically aligned, leading to suggestions that the carvings have an astronomically significance themselves.

The most noticeable astronomical feature of Newgrange is the orientation of the passage towards the winter solstice sunrise. Although, in itself this no mean feat of engineering. What is amazing is that the designers managed to narrow the beam of solstice sunlight into such a small beam of light, and then have it travelling upward along the channel towards the chamber. In addition, the light-box itself has been designed so as to enhance this effect. Newgrange is just one part of a huge observatory that is the 'Boyne valley complex'.

Information has emerged in favour of the suggestion that they have an astronomical meaning. An American artist has apparently shown though experiment, how the suns rays, when projected onto an object and recorded at the same time each day over a full year, create the shape of a double-spiral (What then is the meaning of the triple spiral?).
