Which Solstice for Stonehenge?

While Stonehenge is a popular attraction for those wishing to celebrate the Summer Solstice, the monument may actually have been constructed to celebrate the Winter holiday.

The latest research, which includes study of pigs' teeth and wooden post circles, points to the Winter Solstice as the actual holiday for which Stonehenge was designed. The remains of Neolithic pigs born in spring show that they were of an age to have been slaughtered in the winter.
