County Meath (the "middle") was formed from the eastern part of the former kingdom of Mide (see Kings of Mide) but now forms part of Leinster. Historically the kingdom included all of the current county as well as all of Westmeath and parts of Cavan, Longford, Louth, Offaly, Dublin and Kildare. The High King of Ireland sat at Tara in Meath. The archaeological complex of Brú na Bóinne is 5,000 years old and includes the burial sites of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, in the northeast of the county. It is a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.
