Happy Solstice!

There's a neat film about the solstice at New Grange, a 5,000 year old structure, a thousand years older than Stonehenge.  At the winter Solstice, the interior of the structure lights up,  at this time of the year and only at this time of year.

It's a bit long, but it discusses a lot about the background of the monument and the significance of the solstice.  Kind of neat.
