The Clever Celts!
Navan Centre & Fort
028 3752 9644

Despite living at Navan Fort around 2000 years ago, the Celts were very advanced in their scientific knowledge! As part of NI Science Festival, join us on a visit to our Iron Age dwelling, where the clan will explain the different plants they would have used for medicinal purposes such as the bark of willow for pain relief, nettles as an anti-inflammatory and chamomile for calming. Learn how the Celts preserved their food in a time long before fridges & freezers, and how to light a fire without using a match!

After your visit to the dwelling, walk in the footsteps of warriors on a guided tour to Navan Fort, where you will learn about the significant archaeological discoveries at the ancient capital of Ulster and seat of Kings.
