The Boyne Valley Calendar

In this book, The Boyne Valley Vision, published by the Dolmen Press, Martin Brennan provided a decipherment of the megalithic calendar incised some five thousand years ago on a large kerbstone at Knowth in the Boyne Valley. This amazing device shows the method of computing dates in those remote times, and may be the earliest calendar known to man.

This scientific tool from the oldest culture known to us traces the moon through its monthly phases, the occurrences of the vernal and autumnal equinoxes and the relationship of the lunar and solar cycles which is the basis for calendar computation.

The Boyne Valley Calendar has now been issued as a separate wall chart, printed in three colours on a fine heavy weight cartridge paper, size 20 x 15 inches (51 x 38 cms), suitable for framing. There are two reproductions from drawings by Martin Brennan and an explanatory text.

Price £1.60 net (£2 inc. VAT in the Republic of Ireland), Postage extra
