Daily Photo: Newgrange, Ireland

Newgrange Passage tomb, Ireland

I was bowled over by the Newgrange site. Not just the rock carvings or the way the light illuminates the inner chamber on the winter solstice. No, I was impressed by the fact that even though it was older than Stonehenge at over 5000 years old, it was still weatherproof inside. Now think for a minute of the structures we build today. Will they keep out the Irish rain in 5000 years time?
