  • Tullaghoge Fort

    http://www.irishtimes.com/culture/he...-dig-1.2104734
    "An archaeological bid to discover more about the hilltop where Ulster chieftains were crowned 700-years ago has uncovered artefacts dating back more than 7,000 years.
    Tullaghoge Fort in rural Co Tyrone was where leaders of the dominant O’Neill clan came to be crowned from around the 14th century to just before the arrival of the planters at the start of the 17th century."

    The thing that strikes me about this find is the continuity. I think that the Ulster chieftains chose this ancient site because of the link to their ancestors.
