Iden­ti­fied with Eamhain Mhacha (the leg­endary cap­i­tal of Ul­ster), Na­van Fort is the most im­pres­sive an­cient site in North­ern Ire­land. The mas­sive earth­work sits on a drum­lin and com­prises two mounds en­closed by a ditch and bank, with el­e­ments dat­ing var­i­ously from the late Bronze Age, Iron Age and early Chris­tian era. As well as the fort it­self, visit the ad­join­ing Na­van Cen­tre, home to a replica Iron Age dwelling where you can learn to cook net­tle soup and pre­pare for bat­tle like a Celtic war­rior.
