Worldbuilding Wednesday - Irish Archaeology in Photos

Over on the irisharchaeology.ie website, there is a recent pictorial article on "Through the millennia: Irish Archaeology in photos."  There are many cool pics of sites you can sprinkle around your own tabletop RPG setting whether you cleave close to the original reason for them to have come into being or something of your own design.  See more here.


"Starry Night at Tara," a photo by Kevin Murphy, was taken at the Mound of the Hostages.  It's the site of an ancient passage tomb.  Check out the entry on Atlas Obscura for even more photos of this particular location.  Oh, and since you're probably wondering even if you visited the wiki page and the atlas already, according to NewGrangeTours.com, "The name Mound of the Hostages derives from the custom of over- kings like those at Tara retaining important personages from subject kingdoms to ensure their submission."  That's a worldbuilding detail worth its weight in hostage mounds.
