A New Take On An Old Theme:- Stonehenge has, for many years, been associated with summer solstice and the longest day at mid-summer. Recently there has been an upsurge of opinion in favour of it being there to mark mid-winter and particularly the mid-winter solstice when daylight is at its shortest and weakest and the sun and season turn to begin the long journey back towards summer again.
Here I describe a solution that shows that Stonehenge was designed to mark both events equally, but for a very significant and astronomical reason that was (and still is) of far greater importance than marking the (obvious and easily observed ) annual cycle of the sun.
