Newgrange is a Stone Age (Neolithic) monument in the Boyne Valley, County Meath, it is the jewel in the crown of Ireland's Ancient East. Newgrange was constructed about 5,200 years ago (3,200 B.C.) which makes it older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza. Newgrange is a large circular mound 85 meters (93 yards) in diameter and 13.5 meters (15 yards) high with a 19 meter (21 yard) stone passageway and chambers inside. The mound is ringed by 97 large kerbstones, some of which are engraved with symbols called megalithic art.
The Newgrange spiral (or “tri-spiral”) design is engraved on the stone in front of the entrance, and represents one of the most famous Irish Megalithic symbols. Although it is considered to be Celtic design, it actually appeared in Ireland over 2,500 years prior to the arrival of the Celts.
