So sorry I haven’t been posting lately!! Don’t worry I’m all ok my owner has just been busy with exams and studying but I’ve still been having lots and lots of fun ♥️ here’s a video of me eating pumpkin seeds, my most favorite treat ever 🎃😋🐹
Dear diary today I had to get up so very very early yawn, as I wanted to witness the #summersolstice from #wiltshire or to be precise #stonehenge the home of the #jippy and more traditionally the #druid culture . Sun rise was about 4:51am this morning so its been a long old day yawn.
Stonehenge is a very famous #prehistoric#monument , there are other circles near by but none as impressive or as famous as this #stonecircle is on the longest day of the year, better known as the summer #solstice .
There is many theories as to why stone henge exists from aliens to our ancient ancestors creating it as a place to worship their gods. Or it may just have been a giants domino set! Over time there has been many theories based on the stones positions, on how the rising and setting sun on specific days effects the stones, and @archeologicl excavation has gathered over 250 objects to tell a history of the who came to the stones over 5,500 years ago. There is also skeletal remains of a man who was found close to the #henge , of which they have been able to #forensically reconstruct so you can go face to face with a human who stood here many years before us. They also believe the site to be an ancient #burialground which adds I think to its slightly spooky yet jaw dropping feeling when you stand there.
Every year thousands still gather at these mighty #stones to witness the rising summer solstice #sun (today it was estimated that there was about 9,500 people and one hammy) , they are a mixture of tourists, newage religion followers, (also called hippys) and Druids (there's debate over current druidic prstice as most druids follow a victorian interpretation). Over the years there have been clashes of these groups which has led to them being prevented from getting near the stones however, today was a peaceful congregation of all. The druid and colourful traveller united in celebrating the sun.
As people drift away the stones get their look don't touch life back till next year but it was the only place to be today at 4am!
