Winter Solstice Sunrise alignment at Stonehenge: "there is a deliberate Winter Solstice Sunrise alignment through Stonehenge, making use of a notch in Stone 58 to target a position on Coneybury Ridge where the sun rose in 2500BC."
Impressive find - I'll be there on the morning to try and see it.
Nice idea - and I'm sure the druids carved the hole to make a nice sunrise as they did pushing over the Heel Stone to greet the Summer solstice sunrise.
Sadly, this is not the original use of the 'temple' as Stone 9 (now missing) would have blocked the Sun in 2500BC - The original stone structure in 4500BC would have made a 'razor light edge' running across (stone 23?) at sunrise, very similar to the site at Newgrange.
Sorry its stone 8 that would block the view - I was counting from memory rather than a plan.ReplyDelete
