Yet another week has gone by in the land of green hills and gray skies. And what a week! After the hectic mess of midterm papers and traveling I gave myself a break and took it easy. So I actually got sleep, had fun with friends, and started to sew my cloak for the Medieval Renaissance Society banquet in December.
While I don’t have any photos from these escapades, I do have many other photos to share from archeology trips earlier in the term! So without further ado, I present to you…
The Beauties of Newgrange, Monasterboice, and Dublin!
This ancient tomb is older than the pyramids!
Entrance to the tomb - at the center is the rock with the famous celtic tri-circle deisgn
