Stonehenge was left draped in litter after 36,500 revellers descended on the ancient site to celebrate the summer solstice.

Druid Jim Saunders, 33, from Reading, is a member of the Aes Dana Grove order. ‘It is nice to see a lot of people here because there is no better place to learn about our culture and history.

‘But it is upsetting to see so much litter, and some people can be disrespectful.’

‘The significance of Stonehenge on the solstice to me is to do my best to educate as many people as possible in our culture,’ he said.

    Most people don’t want to hear the true history of Stonehenge because they don’t want to believe that the one true Living God exists, the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. If someone acknowledges the real existance of God they will have to admit they are accountable to God for their sin; impossible to do unless you are willing to bow to the Creator of the universe!

    That is a nice story but he is your god and mythology not mine. please stop trying to inject your beliefs onto someone that already has his own and is happy with it. Im sure you would not like it if i kept trying to convert you to my religion.

    Sorry Meg, but I really fail to see what your abrahamic God has to do with Stonehenge. It was built by Pagans, not by Christians.
