Are you friends with the British Library on Facebook yet? Even if you aren’t on Facebook you can visit their Facebook page. Today, in honour of Solstice, they’s posted several images from their archives including this one from 1867 that comes from a travel book of the period. The BL provides the following information:
“Trilithons (B and C) from the South west. Image taken from Plans and Photographs of Stonehenge, and of Turusachan in the Island of Lewis; with notes relating to the Druids, etc… Originally published/produced in Southampton, 1867. ”
Love the British Library for many reasons. Today they’ve given me another. Check them out if you haven’t already. Remember, you do not have to be a vetted scholar to enjoy the rich cultural artefacts of the nineteenth century.
