Hello and welcome to my blog called ‘The Journal of Antiquities’. I hope you will be able to come along on this journey around the British Isles including Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and join in looking at some of the antiquities that we treasure – there are thousands of sites, but I will try to look at as many as possible. But I won’t waste time by giving great amounts of detail – I will cut to the bone as they say and say just what is needed. A grid reference, site position, and some detail about each site. However, some of the more well-known sites may need a bit more information, so I will try my best to provide that. I will also display photos or drawings etc of each site where it is possible. Comments are very welcome but, this is not a social networking site, and so comments will need to be kept short and, also “friendly”. Thanks.
The journal will include the following:- Prehistoric, Celtic, Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Medieval sites but, also I will put some more recent curiousities on the blog, as well. Included on here will be burial chambers, standing stones, stone circles, inscribed stones, ancient crosses, holy wells/springs, ancient churches, hillforts, earthworks, rock-art, glacial erratics and other stuff ! Oh, and myths, legends and folklore, too.
So, once again please come along on the journey and enjoy reading the blog.
You can now put comments on again. Please do not post advertisments as they will only be deleted, unless they are of particular interest to this blog site. Any repeat comments will also be deleted. Thank you.
There may be a few spelling mistakes and other errors in some of the posts. I am trying to spot these and put them right. So please be patient. I am doing my best. Thank you.
Further Afield !
I am hoping to start putting a few sites on from further afield, shortly. These may include ancient sites in France, and maybe one or two other European countries. So watch this space!
Also, you can now find ‘The Journal of Antiquities’ on Facebook!

Just wondering, before I consider subscribing… is that this an actual, individually composed letter to each and every subscriber, or does each individual writer compose a single letter each week and send the same composition to all of the subscribers they’re assigned to write to?

No Irving its just me (myself) putting sites/articles on all by myself – there’s knobody else involved. Thanks for your interest. Please do subscribe to (follow my blog).

I’m really to be eventually putting up on the web soon after all these many years. There truly is no mystique (sp) about it, is there? I just dropped by your weblog and had to write. I’m a recent school grad, journalism major if you should know, and I totally love photography. I’ve got my site up but it’s nothing at all to brag about yet. None of my stuff’s been posted. Quickly as I determine out how to do that, I’ll spend the afternoon posting my best shots. anyways just thought I’d drop a line. I hope to return with far more substantial information, things you can in fact use.

Thank you and good luck with your forthcoming site. Let me know when its up and running.

Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

WordPress is the best in my opinion.

Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

Well thankyou Naprawa, but what I have wrote “is the truth”. I doubt that I could have put in any other way. Its a short guide/history of what there is at Kilnaboy.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
