Fourknocks is a collection of passage graves located in County Meath in the Republic Of Ireland.
Excavated in the early 1950’s, archaeologists have dated them back to the megalithic era. The dozens of graves found at Fourknocks are hidden beneath large mounds and are decorated with prehistoric artwork including a rough portrait of a human face.
