Brú na Boinne has been an important ritual, social and economic centre for thousands of years. Its universal value was recognised in 1993 when it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, only one of three on the island of Ireland. As part of the responsibilities of managing a WHS, host countries are required to maintain an up to date management plan and research framework. Knowledge and understanding of the significance of Brú na Bóinne has been gradually revealed through a process of discovery and research which began over 300 years ago. This documents reviews this corpus of research, putting its significance in context and identifying particular gaps in the research record for the area, particularly those caused by the advent of new technologies.
