Near Fine in Very Good jacket. 4to-over 9¾-12" tall Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. First Edition. Inscribed By Author. "Newgrange was built by a forgotten society more than 5, 000 years ago during the Stone age. It is now generally accepted that its builders were peaceful, sun-worshipping farmers. Many people today are aware of the fact that this massive structure, built with ten-tonne boulders, is aligned with the winter solstice sun."--from the dustjacket. Illustrated. Interesting insights into one of Ireland's most significant ancient monuments noted for its superbly planned construction. Prehistoric architecture and engineering of Irish interest and study. Published in 1993, it has taken ten years for this startling theory to attract firm interests both at home in Ireland and in the U. S: the kernel of the book is a theory that this Neolithic structure is more sophisticated than the current archaeological establishment is prepared to accept. 147 pages including index.
