SIGNIFICANT ARCHEOLOGICAL FIND AT HILL OF TARA

An ancient wooden version of Stonehenge has been
discovered at the Hill of Tara. The scale of the
monument which is still buried beneath the hill
is comparable with the size of the pitch at Croke
Park. It is estimated the discovery is 4500 years
old and while the actual wooden structure no
longer exists a ditch stretching six metres wide
and three metres deep was detected in the bedrock,
using techniques that give a kind of X-Ray of
the hill.

Yep, they've found evidence of this type of thing before. The theory that makes the most sense to me is that the woodhenges were ritual sites for the living and used for festivals like Beltaine. Stonehenge, being permanent, was for honoring the dead and used at Samhain.

Kyddryn said...

Fascinating...perhaps this will help to save the hill...or are there still plans afoot to pave over Tara for a highway? I'm so out of touch...

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

You and me both, apparently, Lady K... what's this about PAVING TARA???

Gads, now I gotta dig...lol!

Thanks, Flowered One...

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Livia Indica-- very interesting take!
I like it...

We think of the distance, modernly, from Tara to The Circle-- or anywhere outside our own 'neighborhood' as easily traversed; in times past, sans petrol, not so much...
Makes sense that the castehood of then would want to have a 'local' draw for celebratory Rites...

Thanks, Liv... now I got research materials for future fodder-- all from a simple Sun's Day spot!!!

Take care, Lady Liv!

Moonwaves said...

Yes, indeed. See http://www.savetara.com/ for some of the idiocy that contributed to my decision to get out of Ireland. Money went to everyone's head during the Tiger years!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

the man looks like a lard-fed, disconnected arse...

sounds like it, too.

y'left fair Eirrean, did ye?

may it prove--for you, not for reasons deserted-- the best of choices, Moonwaves...

Slainte...
