Welcome to the hompage of the Navan Research Group
New Website Launched
December 12th, 2012
... just before the 21st ;-) – December 2012 finally sees the launch of our website.
Take a look around and let us know what you think – but remember – the site is still under construction ...
The Navan Research Group (NRG) was formed in the spring of 1986. By this time the campaign that focussed attention on quarrying at Navan aroused massive public interest about Navan (Emain Macha), Ulster's ancient capital.
The various members of the NRG, drawn from the Queen's University, the Historic Monuments and Buildings' Branch of the Department of the Environment, and the Ulster Museum, all shared a research interest in the Navan complex and related monuments. Consequently, we believed that both our own interests and those of the general public would be best served by the formation of the Navan Research Group. The primary functions of the NRG are to coordinate and undertake research into the Navan complex and related monuments, promote and assist the research of others who are similarly engaged, and to inform both our colleagues and the general public of current research.
In order to fulfill this last function the NRG decided to publish its own bulletin, Emania.
