Find of a Lifetime in Scotland

posted 26 Feb 2017

Welcome

The county of Waterford, situated in the south-east of Ireland, is rich in ancient Megalithic monuments. 

Prehistoric Waterford documents these early structures which are thousands of years old, most of which date back to the Neolithic period (4500-2500 BC). The monuments form a remarkable collection of  intriguing architectural symbols, that stand as testaments to our forefather's way of life, their customs and beliefs and their quest for knowledge.

From a distant age of spirits and gods, they have bestowed on us a lasting legacy of reminders of a past society who sought to understand the eternal mysteries of life on earth and the hereafter.

The website welcomes participation in the form of contributions and feedback.

Thank you for visiting and hoping that you will enjoy your prehistoric journey through the county.
