‘HOW TO READ STONEHENGE’ provides a clearly written visual guide that showcases how the sky-watching architects of Stonehenge cleverly combined pairs of stone formations to provide stunning, multiple-slit viewing perspectives that indicate the solar migration movements – and not just the June summer solstice sunrise and December winter solstice sunset, to which the axis was aligned. Using detailed illustrations, author Colin Parker invites the reader inside the monument – granting access on paper, given visitors no longer have access to the area around the stones in actuality – and demonstrates how these solar migration movements, charted by the monument’s stones, divide not only the Neolithic but also today’s vitally important agricultural year. After reading How to read Stonehenge, you’ll never look at the monument in the same way again.
