Stonehenge Sun Calendar

The pre-historic peoples of Ireland, Britain, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, France and Germany exhibit similar elements of ancient beliefs and a Sun calendar: sixteen months, four weeks a month, five days a week, 365 days a year. Days could have been named for the ancient deities Sun, Moon, Woden, Thor and Freyr.


We continue to mark eight annual events in the ancient Sun calendar:

Two solstices = Summer & Winter
Two equinoxes = Spring & Autumn
Llew = Harvest
Samhain = Halloween
Imbolc = Lmbing
Beltane = Mayday
