1. Rites of Passage at Tara Exhibition
The Hill of Tara is the focus of this exhibition, presenting the most ancient monument of this particular hill. It shows the mount of hostages as it was called that concealed the tombstone for burial which is called the passage tomb developed in 3000 BC. I found this to be one of the oldest exhibitions visited, because its history goes way back to even 100 BC. And the tomb in reference was used as a mass burial site for over 1500 years. So, the Rites of Passage at Tara exhibition consists of all the artifacts excavated from this site, containing a lot of archaeological facts symbolizing the exchange of hostages that transacted at that point.
