>The shining light<

Historians and archaeologists believe that the circle, and its surrounding avenues, were constructed some three to four thousand years ago.
The thirteen great stones of the inner circle stand closely grouped, like huge beings in a secret conclave. The tallest, the central pillar stone, guards the entrance to a burial cairn. This was found to contain human bones, which are thought to have been those either of a tribal chieftain or of a sacrificial victim of the Druids.
Some say the stones are men who were turned literally to stone by a enchanter, others that the stones have astronomical connections with the sun and the moon, or that they were a ceremonial site. Up until the end of the last century the local islanders believed that on midsummer morning, 'something', described as a 'shining light', would travel slowly down the main avenue of stones to the cairn, heralded by the song of a cuckoo. Perhaps this strange light was rising sun that had come to reclaim or return the spirits of those who had been ceremonially buried there.
Why not simply accept that some form of magic is at work, something far more powerful than the mind of man?
