    Archaeologists can now say for certain that Stonehenge was once a complete
    circle after the dry weather revealed the ghostly outlines of missing stones.

    Fascinating... I live 10 minutes away from stonehenge now, being in the stones at solstice had been one of the best experiences of my life.

    I was at a free festival there in the 70s, with a bunch of bikers. I watched the sunrise over the Heel Stone. Never forgotten it. Wild days, you could climb and sit on the stones then.

    I recommend Avebury circle instead. Much smaller crowds, much less police and military surveillance. Much stronger ley line energy too.

    I spent Midsummer night in the Avebury circle a few years ago. It was the first dry solstice in many years and the skies were clear all night. About 4a.m. at first light a beautiful ground fog arose, making the stones appear to float above the ground. It was magical.

    Then at proper sunrise the 200 or so celebrants joined in a circle to witness a couple being handfasted.

    Unforgettable.

    ETA that same Solstice there were 11,000 celebrants at Stonehenge.
