Excavations at Knowth - Volume 1

Excavations at Knowth The ancient burial sites of Knowth, Newgrange and Dowth make up the archaeological complex at Bru na Boinne, 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.
