Boyne Valley Tours

Archaeo-astronomy presentation by BJ Harper

St. Mary's (Church of Ireland), Navan.

Sunday 8th November 2009 at 8pm

Admission €5

The Winter Solstice rising sun alignment into the chamber of Newgrange is now one of the best known archeo-astronomical phenomena in Ireland. But this event is one of many that take place across the world. Places also seem linked together with mythologies and names. Betty Jo will draw together threads that connect America, Europe and beyond through our archaeology, mythologies and astronomy.

Followed by tea, biscuits and a chance to exchange ideas, views and experiences.
