Newgrange - Archaeology, Art and Legend by Michael J. O'Kelly and Claire O'Kelly. All plans are from Newgrange Archaeology, Art and Legend where Professor O'Kelly presents the full results of his excavations at Newgrange between 1962 and 1975. Every stage in the excavation, interpretation and restoration of the site is described and illustrated with additional contributions from Claire O'Kelly, who collaborated in her husband's work at Newgrange.
