The archaeology and mythology of Navan with its tutelary goddess Macha are just some of the indications that equine rites were a significant part of ancient kingship ceremonial.

John Waddell is Emeritus Professor of Archaeology in the National University of Ireland Galway. For over a decade and with the support of the Heritage Council, his research has focused on the royal site of Rathcroghan in western Ireland, a complex of archaeological monuments that figures prominently in early Irish literature.
