Knowth Passage Tomb ::
The kerb stones of Knowth represent a huge proportion of Neolithic art in Ireland. Nearly every stone is decorated around the main mound. The cut away that is the entrance can just be made out, with a stone decorated with concentric rectangle in front of it.

Upon the rediscovery of the east passage one of the first people to enter it was a workman called John Rock. I like that!

For a very good (and definitive) read on Knowth, the book by George Eogan, the chief excavator, is a must. It is beautifully written and full of information and excellent drawings of the art-work at knowth.
