Description

In the ancient literature of Ireland, the fort of Emain Macha was the home of the princes and kings of Ulster. According to the Celtic legends, it was built by King Conchobar who also built two other palaces - one for his treasure and the other for the spoils of war.

Tony Robinson and the Time Team go to Navan, the modern day site of Emain Macha. Can they find any evidence of the other palaces in just three days? And will they be able to find a connection between what may have been a sacrificial pool and an ancient hill called Haughey's Fort?
