An archaeologist's dream, County Meath is traditionally known as the 'Royal County' because it contained the seat of the ancient High Kings of Ireland at the Hill of Tara. The Megalithic passage tombs of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth date back to 3200 B.C. and attract visitors from all over the world to the Br? na B?inne Centre, just outside Donore, which interprets the archaeological history of the Boyne Valley. Newgrange is Ireland's only "World Heritage" designated site. Other World Heritage sites include the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Egypt and Stonehenge but at 5000 years old, Newgrange is the oldest.
