As part of the School of Science and Technology's Engineering and Materials Research Seminar Series, Dr Frank Prendergast, Dublin Institute of Technology presents:Facing the Sun & Stars—the role and meaning of the sky in prehistoric Ireland.

Thousands of stone and timber monuments were constructed in Ireland from the stone age to the Iron Age. Their use ranged from being funerary to ceremonial. This richly illustrated talk will explain how some were aligned in the prehistoric past to reflect people's ritual concerns with the seasonal movement of prominent celestial bodies.
