    The research suggests that Navan Fort was of great importance religiously

    A "monumental temple complex" that dates back to the Iron Age and several buildings that housed the early kings of Ulster may be hidden underground at Navan Fort, according to a newly published study.


    The research suggests that Navan Fort was of great importance religiously. Navan Fort, located in County Armagh, Northern Ireland, is "one of Ireland’s most famous and important archaeological sites, the legendary Emain Macha," according to an Armagh travel website. LiveScience notes it was the capital of Ulster in pre-Christian Ireland, LiveScience reported.

    "Historical texts imply that these Iron Age complexes became enduring symbols of power for early medieval societies, and royal centers for overkings," the researchers wrote in the study's abstract. "These references, alongside the incredible scale of these landscapes, have encouraged intensive research, but only recently has non‐invasive survey begun adding new data and facilitating new interpretations. Prior to the present study, discussion of Navan Fort was limited to the results of small‐scale but iconic excavations."
