Fascinating - though if the stones are at sunrise and sunset on the longest day, presumably they are approx NE and NW.... sorry!

Good point, Patricia. Years ago, Ellen, a professor's wife asked several of us at a party what we read for pleasure. I said that right then I was reading a lot of cultural anthropology. She said, "Talk about escapist literature."

Stonehenge is locate at a powerful intersection of natural forces so it is not surprising that there are ruins being found that predate the stones.

Thanks for sharing such an interesting article!
