Newgrange is unhesitatingly regarded by the prehistorian as the great national monument of Ireland; in the words of the late Sean O'Riordain, 'one of the most important ancient places in Europe'. Its special importance has been widely realized since the early description by Edward Lhwyd in 1699, and each generation finds in it something new and interesting.

Part 1 Introduction to Newgrange, Claire O'Kelly: brief description; previous history of the site; Newgrange in early Irish literature. Part 2 Excavation: methods; the cairn slip; the great circle; the cairn; the exterior; the tomb interior. Part 3 Post-excavation: conservation and restoration.
