  • Aw, poor pagans! They were shunned by the sun!

  • According to The Times, there is "less than one in ten chance of seeing the sun" on the Summer Solstice.

    Makes you wonder if the climate was significantly different when it was build roughly 4500 years ago, or if sighting the Summer Solstice sunrise was a minor use of the stones.
