Description
Description
The banqueting hall (tech midchúarta) of Tara is vividly described in a variety of medieval Irish sources. This paper examines descriptions of the physical layout and social regulation of the banqueting hall in some of these sources with a view to retrieving how their authors understood its form and function, and assesses evidence associating the banqueting hall with the cursus monument in Tara known today as Tech Midchúarta.
