Here, we'll discuss the history of the University and the Old Library, looking at how the Book of Kells arrived. Once inside, we'll see the Book of Mulling and the Book of Dimma—both 8th century pocket Gospels.

Our visit will continue with the famous Long Library and its barrel vaulted ceiling. This stunning interior inspired the Jedi Archives in Star Wars, Part II: Attack of the Clones. We will have a little time to view the books and documents on display here, but before leaving the library we'll stop at the Brian Boru Harp—potentially the oldest harp in the world, and an instrument with a mysterious past. This will introduce a discussion on bardic culture and the continuation of the literary and poetic tradition down through the centuries.
Myths and Gold
Leaving Trinity College, we'll head to the National Museum of Ireland. Here, we'll delve into Celtic culture and mythology, starting with a discussion about the Tuatha dé Dannan, a mythical race of people from early Irish literature that brought four magical items to Ireland from cities—since disappeared—in the Northern Ocean.
We'll look at the origins of this strong mythology, traditionally located on the Hill of Tara, in the Boyne area. The discussion will cover the rich material outcomes of that culture like chalices, crosiers, brooches, and other objects d'art that will help us understand the sophistication of Irish culture at the time. Finally, we'll see how objects like the beautiful Ardagah Chalice connect the mythological culture back to the early-Christian monks. We'll also link them to the Arthurian legend and its resonance as a modern day Holy Grail, with a replica of the chalice serving as the much-coveted trophy for Gaelic football sports. The walk will conclude with a viewing of other objects from the early-Christian period including the Tara Brooch and the Clonmacnoise Crozier.
