Welcome the summer with a solstice celebration! Erin Baxter, curator of anthropology, will host an evening spotlighting past and present solstice revelry. First, Erica Ellingson from the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder will take you on tour of the ancient skies of Stonehenge and discuss the astronomical events venerated by its builders. Then, Deborah Whitehead, associate professor of religious studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, explores how modern-day religious groups like druids and neopagans interpret and interact with the ancient site of Stonehenge.
