The thesis introduces the reader to the discourse on the authenticity of some ofNewgrange’s reconstructed features and proposes to analyze it using Actor-NetworkTheory, specifically taking inspiration from a paper by Callon (1986) - "Some Elementsof a Sociology of Translation: Domestication of the Scallops and the Fishermen of StBrieuc Bay".Authenticity is established as the central theme of the discourse, but three main pointsof contention are established by the author by reviewing the recently published materialon the subject. The three points are the quartzite revetment wall, the solar alignmentphenomenon, and the significance of the site outside the Neolithic context being shownto visitors now.The analysis finds that there are two alliances vying for access to the monument. Thealliance led by The Office of Public Works Ireland has successfully undergone the fourmoments of translation and have established themselves as The Obligatory Passage-Point. The researchers trying to challenge the authenticity of Newgrange have a moretenuous alliance, actively trying to involve other actors in their cause, such as The IrishPublic.The thesis concludes that the status quo of the situation will likely remain unchanged,unless internal dissidence occurs from within The Obligatory-Passage Point, or otheractors are enrolled, causing a shift of power. The thesis also finds it highly unlikely thatUNESCO will interfere directly in the matters of The Republic of Ireland, as per the Naradocument on authenticity.
