Newgrange, originally uploaded by Tak from HK.

Newgrange, the Irish passage tomb built in 3000BC of the stone age, i.e. iron and copper were not yet used by human.

It is a big dome like structure where the stone are moved from distance to built it. Inside of the tomb is complete darkness, except every winter solstice, at 8:58, the sunlight passes through the roof box via the passage reaching the tomb chamber. Interesting!
