The Clever Celts!
Event Description

Despite living at Navan Fort around 2,000 years ago, the Celts were very advanced in their scientific knowledge! Join us on a visit to our Iron Age dwelling for a Living History experience, where the clan will explain the different plants they would have used for medicinal purposes, such as the bark of willow for pain relief, nettles as an anti-inflammatory and chamomile for calming. Learn how the clan preserved their food in a time long before fridges and freezers and how to light a fire without using a match!

After your visit to the dwelling, walk in the footsteps of warriors on a guided tour to Navan Fort, where you’ll learn about the significant archaeological discoveries at the ancient capital of Ulster and seat of Kings.
