Newgrange older than Stonehenge and pyramids of Giza
Newgrange older than Stonehenge and pyramids of Giza. Actually Newgrange is the oldest construction on the Earth. This prehistoric monument is located in County Meath, Ireland. It was built around 3200 BC, during the Neolithic period. Ancient monument had a religious significance because it was aligned with the rising sun on the winter solstice, which flooded the stone room with light. Newgrange is also older than Stonehenge and the great pyramids of Giza. Today, UNESCO World Heritage Site Newgrange is a popular tourist site, widely recognized as one of the most important megalithic structures in Europe.
The Neolithic people who built the monument were native agriculturalists, growing crops and raising animals such as cattle in the area where their settlements were located; they had not yet developed metal, so all their tools would have been made out of stone, wood, antler or bone.
