Navan Centre

  81 Killylea Rd, Armagh, Co. Armagh      (+44) (0)28 3752 1801     more than a year ago
A few miles west of Armagh sits Navan Fort and the Navan Centre. The site's dominant geographical feature, a Bronze Age hill fort, was once the royal seat of the Kings of Ulster and the Province's ancient capital.

Inside, the exhibitions tell the story of ancient Ireland by following a timeline through the Vanished World of lost myths, the Real World of archaeology and the Other World of the Ulster Cycle - a series of stories based on Irish legends.

Archaeologists continue to unearth important discoveries here, including the traces of a giant Celtic temple, a human skull and the bones of a Barbary ape which probably belonged to a nobleman.
