Summary[edit]

Druidic Calendar

Description
English: Plan of the central Stone Structure at Stonehenge as it survives today. Stone numbers are those conventionally used in the recent literature and following Petrie, F. 1880.

Note that the Term 'Sarsen' used on the key refers to the hard silicified tertiary rock local to the chalkland of the Stonehenge region, sarsen is an exceptionally obdurate form of sandstone: The reference to sandstone on the key is to other ‘non sarsen’ material. The term ‘bluestone’ conveniently, though somewhat controversially, describes a generic group of igneous rock exotic to Salisbury Plain. The major group of bluestones visible today are dolerite - whose province is regarded as south west Wales. A number of other igneous rocks are represented within the arrays. Those interested in the exact make up of the blustone assemblage are referred to Cleal 1995, and Cunliffe and Renfrew 1997.
