He is a troll. An angry one at that.

On topic: I've wanted to make the trip to one of these events for years. Life keeps getting in the way, though. *sigh*

Humans are an ideal that does not exist, you have ideals that doesn't exist. You live in a fantasy of Camelot, it ideals of how societies can work. You are a monkey in a human costume, the human lives in a society, the monkey does not it's forced. Humans does not exist. Never had. Humans are a chivalry ideal. Nature has only one rule.


Camelot, huh? Like Jack and Jackie? That Camelot?

If you can make it ever I'd recommend it

As I said earlier, the solstices are the only two times of the year you can actually touch the stones, and it's also free entry.
It's an amazing festival atmosphere, and to be honest the people who identify as druids are in the minority, most folk are just regular people enjoying a communal celebration of the solstice. Take your own food and blankets though, there are no facilities open at the stones except temporary toilets.

Who brought religion into it? Not the OP, and even though he mentioned Druids they were hardly a religious group, they were the educated/ruling class in Celtic society who kept their followers through the use of 'magic' mushrooms and the like.
You would have found many folk last night at Stonehenge who are spiritually inclined, but I'd say you would be hard pressed to find many who are particularly religious in an orthodox sense.

No, actually, I do not. Your posts are indecipherable.

Says you.
I'm a dyed in the wool agnostic atheist who doesn't believe in anything, be it gods, angels, souls, pixies, fairies, ghosts, dragons or goblins, but I'll never say people should have the same lack of belief as myself.
If someone's belief harms nobody then I have no problem, and will actively defend their right to believe whatever they like.

Did you know people used to travel from as far as the north of scotland and even from the islands.

Would have taken weeks of travel as they used to bring their livestock for feasting too. DNA evidence from slaughter pits and the bones etc showed that some of the animals being eaten were from these areas.

That or there was a LOT more trading than we thought back then (talking 1000's of years)

But yes was a lovely morning here (i live a few miles from Stonehenge) usually is wet and miserable for the solstice.

I'm still hoping. It's on my bucket list.


Am I seeing a sock puppet account on ATS lately?

How the bluestone dolerites were transferred all the way from South Wales 4-5 thousand years ago is another amazing question of history as well.

I say do it definitely, but add a few others to the trip, there are hundreds of stone circles in the UK, the largest being Avebury, although Stonehenge seems to be the most famous.
My local favourite is Fernworthy in Devon, I got engaged to the mother of my son there many years ago during a communal camping feast/party.

If you visit in the Summer with a backpack and a tent you can camp at many stone circles, undisturbed, so long as you take your trash with you.
You will also meet many interesting people doing the same thing

Its on the A303 you can't miss it. In fact its been there since before even the pyramids were built.

Haha, true!
...off topic but I remember the A303 before it had speed cameras every few miles, it was a beautiful road to drive then, never mind the amazing 4-5000 year old monument out the window

edit on 21.6.2015 by grainofsand because: removed full stop so "window" didn't turn into "_" ATS bug/glitch

Yes, there will be 4 more seconds of daylight before the Sun sets this evening than yesterday, and there will be 1 second less of daylight tomorrow.
Today is the day of change.
