Miscellanea

The first 'proper' report on Newgrange was by Edward LLhwyd, keeper of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, in 1699. He wrote:

"I also met with one monument in this kingdom, very singular; it stands at a place called New Grange, near Drogheda, and is a mount, or barrow, of very considerable height, encompassed with vast stones, pitched on end, round the bottom of it, and having another, lesser, standing stone on the top."

"The entry into this cave is at bottom, and before it we found a great flat stone, like a large tomb-stone, placed edgeways, having on the outside certain barbarous carvings, like snakes encircled, but without heads."
