Six volumes of archaeological excavations at Knowth now freely available online!

To mark the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the world renowned Eastern Tomb at Knowth, the Royal Irish Academy has published  free online its 6 books on Excavations at Knowth on the Digital Repository of Ireland.

The Academy’s aim is to spark new research on Knowth and to help those researching the newly discovered sites in the Unesco World Heritage site of Brú na Bóinne.
Knowth is the biggest of the passage tombs discovered so far – bigger than Newgrange – and boasts the largest collection of Neolithic art.

The importance of making such research freely available and accessible is crucial to researchers and interested parties alike to enable such research to be built upon and advanced further.
