Gnomon - time to move on

It is not exactly clear when Newgrange was built. Radio-carbon dating of soil in the mound gives an approximate date, but nobody is exactly sure. The general date accepted by archaeologists is sometime in the period 3200 - 2900 BC. This entry uses the older of these two dates, as it is more impressive!smiley - smiley
