Restoration and preservation… April 9, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
That said, the facade of Newgrange is far from uncontested either by those who are expert in the area. It was based on an interpretation of the quartz stones around the front of the tomb. Some believe – perhaps with good reason – that it was more likely a plaza like frontage that people would walk on. The fact that to instate it required a reinforced steel and concrete wall does raise questions.
Still, I’m less exercised by that than the Cadiz example, perhaps because the intention of those who originally constructed Newgrange seems much less clear.
