Synopsis: A history of the thirty-year construction of Newgrange in the Boyne Valley of Ireland explains the beliefs that prompted a band of seafaring travelers to build the structure and reveals its ingenious neolithic design. Original.
From Kirkus Reviews: Subtitled ``The Story of Newgrange,'' this is an account of a Stone Age burial site over 5,000 years. It is difficult to establish the motives of Stone Age farmers; much of what Francis posits as the reasons behind the initial construction is stated as flat facts, without reference (until the last pages) to the scholarship of the 1960s underpinning them. The most potent aspect of the story for contemporary readers--Charles Campbell's 1699 rediscovery of the site that permanently reclaimed it from mere legend--also appears as an afterthought, further dampening the inherent mystery and intrigue behind this little-known topic. Full- color illustrations, while offering visual information diorama- style, do not enliven matters. (Nonfiction. 6-10) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
