What manmade structure is older than Stonehenge or the Eyptian Pyramids?  This one.

What's even more amazing is that despite winters of heavy snow and summers of relentless rain, the Newgrange Passage Tomb hasn't collapsed or flooded and lost its internal structural integrity, allowing the sunrise to shine into its deepest reach on only one day of the year- December's winter solstice.  Definitely worth the drive out from Dublin.
