Irelands Ancient East

 

Labyrinths

The Greeks were building labyrinths over 3000 years ago, in a form we now call the Classical seven circuit design. The labyrinth design which brings the walker to the centre through a single path may well have evolved from a basic spiral design the archetypal symbol known to many ancient cultures.


Newgrange entrance stone

The spirals carved into the entrance stone at Newgrange over 5000 years ago have a similar feel to a labyrinth.



Recently constructed labyrinth near the ancient passage mound at Fourknocks, based on the classical 7 circuit design.

The centre of the Labyrinth has been modified so that there are no straight lines, like the entrance stone at Newgrange.
