MID WINTER'S EVE AT STONEHENGE
Thursday, December 20, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.

Our traditional Stonehenge lecture.    We conduct a tour of Stonehenge, one of the world's most famous megalithic structure.  Its construction began more than 5,000 years ago and required more than two thousand years to complete.   

How did they build Stonehenge?

What was its purpose?

Was it an ancient observatory or a ritual site?  Both?  Neither?

We explore the mysteries of Stonehenge on the Summer Solstice with our Stonehenge scholar Lawrence Price.

Admission by donation.
