“It is indeed immensely picturesque. I can fancy sitting all a summer’s day watching its shadows shorten and lengthen again, and drawing a delicious contrast between the world’s duration and the feeble span of individual experience. There is something in Stonehenge almost reassuring; and if you are disposed to feel that life is rather a superficial matter, and that we soon get to the bottom of things, the immemorial gray pillars may serve to remind you of the enormous background of time.”

Henry James | Transatlantic Sketches (1875)

The History

The circular ditch, with an internal bank and a smaller external bank, built about 3000 BC was the first major construction at Stonehenge.

The stones are aligned upon the solstitial axis. At midsummer, the sun rises over the horizon to the north-east, close to the Heel Stone. At midwinter, the sun sets in the south-west, in the gap between the two tallest trilithons, one of which has now fallen.

These times in the seasonal cycle were obviously important to the prehistoric people who built and used Stonehenge.
