Record Crowds at Stonehenge

The Times reports that there were 36,500 people at Stonehenge for yesterday morning’s Summer Solstice Sunrise. Sadly, the sun remained hidden behind the clouds.

Here’s another report from The Daily Mail, with more and bigger pictures.

As much as I’d like to see a Solstice sunrise at Stonehenge, with those crowds I’m not sorry I wasn’t there!

    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.
