Geophysical Survey at Millmount

Well the hard work has all been done, the mound complex has been scanned inside and out (literally), and now comes the hard work of a different nature; correlating all the data to see what exactly is there. The site could possibly stretch as far back as the neolithic era, which would place it within the same category as Newgrange, Knowth & Dowth, and hopefully solve the mystery of whether legendary Celtic bard Amergin (or someone else) was buried here!

The preliminary results should be made available in the new year so we won't have too long to wait to uncover Millmounts' secrets!

What lies beneath?

All smiles because they're at the bottom of the hill!

Scanning in the tower basement

Is he small or far away?

Even the road around the mound wasn't forgotten
