Longest Day at Stonehenge, Wiltshire Featured Print

Longest Day at Stonehenge, Wiltshire

People gathering at Stonehenge, Wiltshire on the longest day of the year, on or near 21 June 1912. This photograph shows a daybreak pilgrimage by members of The Universal Bond of the Sons of Men, or Church of the Universal Bond. This was a religious group founded in Britain in the early 20th century by George W MacGregor Reid, promoting socialist revolution, anti-imperialism and sun worship. By 1912 Reid was becoming attracted to Druidism, especially as Stonehenge was at the time regarded as a solar temple. His church began holding rituals there, and this continued until the site was given to the state in 1918. When the growing Stonehenge free festival caused the monument to be closed at midsummer in 1985, the Church faded into obscurity but has maintained a presence at the reopened solstice festivities since 2000.

Toward the end of the Gorseth ceremony the bards swear an oath of loyalty "to Cornwall our Motherland". Each bard touches the Sword of King Arthur by putting one hand on the shoulder of the Bard in front. Date: circa 1980s

Music cover for Godfrey's Chilperic Quadrille Featured Print

Music cover for Godfrey's Chilperic Quadrille

Music cover for Charles Godfrey's Chilperic Quadrille, based on airs from Herve's popular opera buffa (or operetta) Chilperic. Herve's Chilperic was a medieval burlesque, based on the story of the Merovingian King Chilperic I (ruled 561-584). After launching in Paris in 1868, the operetta was put on at the Lyceum Theatre in London in 1870. The heroic-looking king is depicted on horseback, led by two ladies in short skirts. There are various other figures, including a man with a bad cold, a butterfly collector and two druids.
