STONEHENGE, THOUGH THOUSANDS OF YEARS IN AGE does not mean that it is unable to adjust to the cyber age.
One of the world’s most famous, ancient and mystical locations of summer solstice celebrations was being hosted in the Heel stone along with the attraction of thousands of people including the communities of druid and pagan on the longest day of the year to watch the rising of the sun behind the Heel Stone.
Since the usual celebration will be impossible this year, the people are requested not to visit the site by The English Heritage organization and they are at the offering of the virtual presentation of the sunrise.
The Director of Stonehenge, Nichola Tasker, stated, “We have consulted widely on whether we could have proceeded safely and we would have dearly liked to host the event as per usual, but sadly in the end, we feel we have no choice but to cancel. We hope that our live stream offers an alternative opportunity for people near and far to connect with this spiritual place at such a special time of year and we look forward to welcoming everyone back next year.”
The peaking of summer at Stonehenge will be presented live on Sunday morning, the 21st of June (local time), on the social media accounts of English Heritage.
