″Newgrange was built by a forgotten society more the 5,000 years ago during the Stone Age. It is now generally accepted that its builders were peaceful, sun-worshipping farmers.

Many people today are aware of the fact that this massive structure, built with ten-tonne boulders, is aligned with the winter solstice sun.

Modern scientists can only tell us that a shaft of sunlight penetrates a long, narrow passage, illuminating a spacious chamber, deep in the mound, possibley for mid-winter funeral rites. But that is as far as they will go.

Peculiarities in the construction suggest that some vital pieces are missing. With the aid of a 1:24 scale model and the application of simple logic, Hugh Kearns reconstructed the missing parts of the internal mechanism. When he set his model in motion, the result was astonishing”. (Publisher).
