On the shortest day of the year, at dawn, a narrow beam of sunlight illuminates the floor of the inner chamber at Newgrange. We ducked and squeezed through this narrow passageway and stood where stone age people once entombed the cremated remains of their dead. The lights were turned off and we were plunged into darkness. As we watched, a simulated beam of light crept across the floor. It was creepy. Mysterious. Wondrous. What inspired these ancient peoples to build such a place? How did they move rock into this valley from as far away as the Wicklow Mountains? And how have the structures they created remained intact and waterproof for more than 5,000 years?
