|Description ||Newgrange. The Irish name is Si An Bhru. The Quartz facade is unique. The Quartz was brought from the Wicklow Mountains 80 Km away. The darker stone at the entrance is not original. It has just been placed there to contrast with the other material and because an indentation has been made in the facade to make room for the stairs that protect the wonderful front curbstone. There are 97 Curbstones, of which the one under the entrance is the most elaborate. The site was built about 3000 BCE and abandoned ca 2000 BCE. |
