Stories and Activities with Children 6: Irish story picture gallery

What might King Fergus have worn? What was an Iron-age roundhouse like? What was a hero’s chariot made of? What about that ‘Cave of the Cats? What does it look like now?

I thought I might put up a page of images to help answer these questions and lots more. I hope these pictures help to make the stories more easy to imagine.
