Knowth in County Meath, Ireland

Knowth in County Meath, Ireland is a Neolithic passage grave and an ancient monument of Brú na Bóinne in Ireland's valley of the River Boyne. It is the largest passage grave of the Brú na Bóinne complex and consists of a large mound (known as Site 1) and 17 smaller satellite tombs. The mound is about 12 metres (40 ft) high and 67 metres (220 ft) in diameter, covering roughly a hectare. It contains two passages placed along an east-west line and is encircled by 127 kerbstones, of which three are missing, and four badly damaged. The large mound has been estimated to date from between 2500 and 2000 BC.The passages are independent of each other, leading to separate burial chambers. The eastern passage arrives at a cruciform chamber, not unlike that found at Newgrange, which contains three recesses and basin stones into which the cremated remains of the dead were placed. The right-hand recess is larger and more elaborately decorated with megalithic art than the others, which is typical for Irish passage graves of this type. The western passage ends in an undifferentiated chamber, which is separated from the passage by a sillstone. The chamber seems to have also contained a basin stone which was later removed and is now located about two-thirds down the passageway. 



  1. I segni incisi nelle rocce sono i SEGNI DELLA RINASCITA e cioè LOSANGHE organo della vita, CIRCOLI CONCENTRICI che rappresentano l'ACQUA, SPIRALI che rappresentano la forza della vita rigenerante che scresce a spirale ma anche i gorghi dell'acqua. Simboli quindi di forza. https://www.academia.edu/13959714/I_SEGNI_d_ACQUA_dalla_Preistoria_al_Medioevo_con_testimonianze_dalla_Lunigiana_

  2. I repeat: The signs engraved in the rocks are the SIGNS OF REVIVAL namely RHOMBUSES organ of life, CONCENTRIC CIRCLES representing WATER, SPIRALI representing the strength of the regenerative life scresce spiral but also the water eddies. then symbols of strength. The force of life is why you represented on the graves. https://www.academia.edu/13959714/I_SEGNI_d_ACQUA_dalla_Preistoria_al_Medioevo_con_testimonianze_dalla_Lunigiana_
