Paul Muldoon introduces an illustrated talk by author and photographer Anthony Murphy. In his lecture, “Dronehenge,” Murphy will discuss his 2018 discovery that has radically changed our view of the Neolithic landscape of Brú na Bóinne.
ANTHONY MURPHY is a journalist, author, photographer, astronomer and tour guide who lives in Drogheda, at the gateway to Ireland’s historic Boyne Valley.

He is the author of five books, with a sixth due to be published November 2019 and a seventh in production.
In 2018, Anthony achieved international recognition when he discovered a previously unknown late Neolithic henge and other monuments close to Newgrange at the Unesco World Heritage Site of Brú na Bóinne. He has been consulted as an expert on Brú na Bóinne by various international media including the History Channel, National Geographic and Britain’s Channel 4.
