Описание слайда:

Midsummer’s Eve Although Midsummer’s Eve is not traditionally a widely celebrated festival in Britain, it is celebrated by druids (practitioners of an ancient religion now virtually extinct) at the prehistoric stone circle of Stonehenge. In recent years, groups of travellers – caravan dwellers – and hippies have also tried to claim the right to enter the circle to see the sun rice on Midsummer’s Day, but they have generally not been allowed, largely because of fears of damage to the ancient monument.

An old children’s rhyme runs: An old children’s rhyme runs: Remember, remember, the fifth of November, Gunpowder, treason and plot! I see no reason why gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot!
