The Giant’s Ring

Ballynahatty, Northern Ireland
Unusually dry conditions in the summer of 2018 allowed drone photography in many areas of Ireland to reveal archaeological features previously unknown. In addition to providing a unique VR view that reveals the entirety of the Giant’s Ring, my drone image seen here delineates a thin ring of green grass inside the outer embankment, perhaps indicating a subterranean structural feature. In addition, the drone’s close-up view from the center of the ring enabled a comparison with the conventional VR from the much wetter summer of 2000.
