The scene is Byrn Celli Du, a burial chamber on the island of Anglesey, North Wales, which is perfectly aligned to funnel the first rays of sunlight as it rises on the summer solstice (which falls on either June 20th or 21st). The local druid group (which still exists!) celebrates the event every year, with the public welcomed along to join in the ceremony and celebrations.
My name's Tom, I'm from Wales, and I have a problem. It's a constant itch to travel to Nowheresville, USA. I like to find out how history came to create the peculiar places I find. My favourite places are Tonopah, Nevada, Wall, South Dakota, and Point Reyes Station, California.
