On its rediscovery one of the first people to enter the east passage was a workman called John Rock. Superb!

For a very good (and definitive) read on Knowth, the book by George Eogan, the chief excavator, is a must. It is beautifully written and full of information and excellent drawings of the art-work at knowth.
