Druids l.jpg

DRUIDS

In the Celtic religion the word Druidry

means the practices of the ancient

druids, the priestly class in ancient

Celtic societies. Their influence was as

much social as religious; infact they

could be philosophers, scientists,

teachers, judges and councillors to the

King. The Druids linked the Celtic people

with their numerous gods, the lunar

calendar and the sacred natural order.

The Ancient Order of Druids was

founded in 1781 by Henry Hurle.

STONEHENGE

Stonehenge is a Neolithic and Bronze Age monument located near

Amesbury in the English county of Wiltshire, about 8 miles (13 km)

northwest of Salisbury. It is composed of earthworks surrounding a

circular setting of large standing stones, known as megaliths. There

is some debate about the age of the stone circle, but most

Archaeologists think that it was mainly constructed between 2500

BC and 2000 BC.

Stonehenge is surely Britain’s greatest national icon, symbolizing

mystery, power and endurance; it was a temple made for workship

of ancient earth deities.

Many of the original stones have fallen or been removed by

Previous generations for home construction or road repair.


The bluestones l.jpg

THE BLUESTONES

The Bluestones are the stones used in the first

stone circle and they come from the Prescelly

Mountains of Wales.

They weigh up to 4 tons each and about 80

stones were used, in all. But the question is:

how could men manage to move them?

Is thought that they’re brought for kilometros

only with the man’s power!

During the ages many of them were moved

away and the mythology attached to the

moving has been attribuited to the magic of

Merlin.
