Covid-19: Life expectancy falls for men and Stonehenge welcomes pagans again

0


About 250 people gathered at Stonehenge as the sun rose on the first official day of autumn. Marking the autumn equinox, druids, pagans and other visitors were allowed access to the stone circle again for the first time since the pandemic began. Solstice celebrations in June and December and equinox gatherings in March and October are normally some of the only occasions when people are allowed to get close to the stones. Despite the pandemic ban, unofficial gatherings still took place earlier this summer. Jess Trethowan from English Heritage, which manages the monument, said the autumn sunrise had “felt really magical”.
