I had the pleasure of being interviewed on LMFM radio today about the Summer Solstice, on this, the longest day of the year.
Gerry Kelly on the Late Lunch Programme had me in studio for a 15-minute chat about the meaning of this astronomical event and how it might have been recorded and celebrated in prehistory.
You can listen back to the interview here:
We also had a chance to discuss my new tour of Newgrange Farm Archaeological Park and Newgrange Chamber, the first of which took place yesterday, 20th June.
Further tours will take place on 4th and 18th July and 1st and 15th August, featuring a visit to the chamber of Newgrange, and then a tour on a specially modified tractor trailer around the fields of Newgrange Farm, which covers a significant portion of the Brú na Bóinne World Heritage Site.
