Day 12 – Rain!

Plan B today. Rain stopped play. We headed off to the Boyne valley in search of our Cistercians. At the top of Knowth passage tomb we looked at the remains of a Cistercian grange (farm) and to Newgrange, site of another Cistercian grange . Here Professor O’Kelly found evidence for medieval cultivation ridges. Shannon, a filmaker from Ohio, came today to begin filming for a documentary on the Irish Archaeological Field school. We are hoping for good weather tomorrow so we can follow the masonry wall.
