Today is the Spring or Vernal #Equinox, a day of equal night and day. To celebrate, a tour was due to take place @NMIreland Archaeology. So here instead, is a #TwitterTour by Archaeology Museum Educator, @trisha_ryan, of some facts from the tour #histedchatie #MuseumFromHome
There are many archaeological monuments and artefacts that are connected to solar or celestial symbols, including the Equinox. For thousands of years, people looked to the skies and their environment to help explain the world.
People expressed this in the monuments they built such as passage tombs and stone circles. The passage tomb of #Knowth has 2 tombs, both at due east and west, and is thought to be aligned to the rising and setting sun of the Equinoxes. Images from @newgrangeknowth

In #Ballarat today to visit the @thegoldmuseum. Going to do a little #TwitterTour so maybe mute my hashtag #GoldMuseumTour if you dont want spoilers for your visit!
#GoldMuseumTour we start outside with a statue of #SirHenryBolte who was a Lib premier of Vic for a record 17 yrs. He supported development of @sovereignhill & pushed to set up an acquisition fund for historic items. Love how his hand is shiny from people grasping it! a bronze statue of a man in a suit sitting down with an arm extended
#GoldMuseumTour we start with a small display of the Indigenous language group who were in this region, the Watha Wurrung. There's some beautiful items on display but no label which identifies and describes and/or ages them. a museum display of skins, wooden spears and a carved shield
