Prehistoric Ireland - Newgrange Passage Tomb Metal Print by Mark Tisdale.

Pockets of prehistoric Ireland abound but this Newgrange passage tomb metal print features what may well be the granddaddy of amazing prehistoric sites. Newgrange is an astronomically aligned passage tomb. Originally timed with the winter solstice, a beam of light illuminates the inner reaches of the decorated mound once a year. Even getting to go inside and witness the simulated light of that day was a highlight of my travels.

Newgrange was already centuries old when the Egyptian pyramids were built. When Stonehenge was built, Newgrange had stood for a thousand years. As it was built before written record, we can only guess at the intentions and the culture of the builders. But it's fascinating to try to peek into the minds of long ago. Imagine this view of the Newgrange passage tomb on a similar winter day 5,000 years ago. Mind boggling isn't it?

What catches your eye in this Newgrange passage tomb metal print? Does it remind you of a visit to this prehistoric site or do you simply love a captivating Irish landscape complete with prehistoric stone monuments?
