In Search of Ancient Ireland explores events and stories from 2000 B.C., when Stone Age farmers built some of Europe's largest and most spectacular Neolithic monuments, to 1167 A.D., when invading Normans seized Ireland for England's king. Archaeological evidence helps document a wealth of Celtic myths and legends, preserved in oral form and first recorded on paper, much embellished, by 9th-century Christian monks.
