word has it that Stonehenge will be open to all for this summer's solstice.

Don't know how true this is, but check http://www.thewarpexperience.com/stonehenge
for latest updates -- here's what's there now:

From George Firstoff

Dear friends,

******************************
TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION
COMMISSION FOR
STONEHENGE
****************************

Fourteenth meeting Tuesday
May 23rd 2000
THE GEORGE HOTEL
AMESBURY
2PM prompt to 6PM

The Commission is an open forum and is a voluntary initiative of The
International Institute of Peace Studies & Global Philosophy, and of The
Stonehenge Peace Process which is a project working to bring together
all parties with an interest in the controversial issues of access to
Stonehenge and the surrounding landscape. We believe that a lasting
solution can only be found if everyone participates and the legitimate
needs of everyone including druids and pagans, local residents,
authorities, new age travellers, the public and all Solstice visitors
can be addressed in a spirit of compromise.

Talks are continuing with English Heritage about the details of public
access over the night 20/21st June 2000 up until 7:30AM. It is important
that the significance of this historic move towards normality is
understood by all, and the rules are not broken, and there is no
confrontation or disruption that will render the stones closed again in
future years. The Council of British Druid Orders are taking names of
volunteers from their community as stewards and anyone wishing to be
"Peace Stewards" can also volunteer to wear Stonehenge Peace Process
badges. The Commission welcomes recent developments as proof that the
different communities are beginning to understand each other. It is a
big first step forward, but not yet the end of the road for our work of
historical peacemaking and reconciliation.
