Archaeologists have provided further confirmation of the astrotheological nature of Stonehenge and that the site is centuries if not millennia older than previously thought. Stonehenge is aligned not only to the sun’s milestones but also to lunar phases, as well as other celestial phenomena, and the site has turned out to be an archaic astronomical computer. Since it is likewise clearly a sacred site, Stonehenge represents one of the preeminent astrotheological locations in the world.
As we can see, the ancients were keenly aware of important astronomical alignments and utilized them as key aspects of their religious worship, which revolved largely around nature worship, especially of the sun, moon, planets, stars, constellations and other celestial phenomena.
