The Cave of Crúachain and the Otherworld
|dc.description.abstract||Oweynagat (Úaimh na gCat), the cave of the cats, is a natural cave with a souterrain attached in the royal site of Rathcroghan, Co. Roscommon. Today it is an inconspicuous monument but is famous in early literature as an entrance to the Otherworld with a remarkable wealth of associated myth. This article explores some of the archaeological manifestations of an ancient belief in a very different Otherworld. It is published in J. Borsje et al., Celtic Cosmology. Perspectives from Ireland and Scotland (Toronto 2014).||en_US|
