Description

North has spent 15 years studying Stonehenge, the great ancient stone monument on Salisbury Plain in southern England. He brings a fresh interpretation which conclusively solves the riddle of Stonehenge. He reveals the religious purpose enshrined in the ancient earthworks. He irrefutably shows that they were directed at the heavens in a scientific way -- in the earliest cases, to the risings & settings of the stars &, later, to those of the Sun & Moon. His extensive research counters received wisdom, including that Stonehenge was dedicated to observation not of the rising midsummer sun but of the setting midwinter sun. Photos.
