    King Arthurs Summer Solstice by Celestial Elf
    King Arthur Pendragon, crowned 'Raised Druid King of Britain' on 3 January 1998 on the ancient Coronation Stone by representatives from 5 Druid Orders, is also the Titular Head and Chosen Chief of The Loyal Arthurian Warband, a Pagan Priest, and Druid Swordbearer with an unshakeable belief in the Divine and his place in this system and most widely known for his role as an environmentalist, and Eco-warrior. His battles with the British Government (in the form of English Heritage) and campaigns for the right of everybody to enter Stonehenge at the Solstices have earned him great respect among many. King Arthur has also written of his experiences in The Trials of Arthur: The Life and Times of a Modern-Day King ( )

    Druid members of LAW may be found at Avebury on the nearest Saturday to celebrations of the eight-fold wheel, in London on Primrose Hill on the nearest Sunday to each Solstice and Equinox and at Stonehenge on the dawn of the Solstices and Equinoxes, performing public Ritual and Ceremony (English Heritage & Wiltshire Constabulary permitting).
    The Loyal Arthurian Warband is a vast network of people working together throughout the world towards a vision of Truth, Honour & Justice ( ).

    The Sumer Solstice;

    The ancient Summer Solstice festivals are still widely celebrated in Britain, Cornwall, Ireland and parts of Northern Europe.
    In the northern hemisphere, the Summer Solstice is when the sun reaches it farthest point north of the Celestial Equator. This day has the greatest amount of time between sunrise and sunset making it the longest day and shortest night of the year and falls around June 21st every year. In the southern hemisphere, the winter and summer solstices are reversed.

    The Midsummer Solstice, also referred to by Neopagans as Litha, signifies the turning point of the Summer Season in the cycle of the year.
    The Goddess is now at her most fertile as the seed planted earlier in her womb grows with the sun. Handfasting ceremonies and weddings at this time demonstrate enduring ties with the Druids' celebration of this day as the 'wedding of Heaven and Earth' resulting in the belief of a 'lucky wedding in June'.
    The Sun King is also at His strongest now, bringing the promise of a great harvest which ensures the continuity of life in the face of the oncoming darkness of winter.


    Stonehenge has been used over 5000 years as a temple, burial ground, a place of gathering, for magic, for ritual, and as an observatory.
    Built between 3200 BC and 1600 BC, Stonehenge lies 9miles north of Salisbury Hill in Wiltshire and is the world's earliest earthwork to contain specific lunar and solar alignments, composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones. That the Summer Solstice Sun rose close to the Heel Stone, and the Sun's first rays shone into the centre of the monument portrays the particular importance placed by its builders on the Solstice and Equinox points of the year.
    Many spiritual beliefs still center on Stonehege, considering the location a cross roads of power and central hub of influentual ley lines alive with earth energy.
