Archdruids and  English Heritage are both disappointed as funding for new Stonehenge visitors’ center is cut by a strapped British government. Last year Gordon Brown promised £10m towards a glass and timber centre and to shut the nearby A344 highway, which, though larger than the ancient megalith, is not so unique. The project was due to be completed in 2012 to coincide with the staging of the Olympics in the UK, but just beore thesummer solstice, the government announced the funding cut. Rollo Maughfling, archdruid of Stonehenge and Britain, greeted the rising of the sun with a blast on his trumpet as 20,000 people turned up to mark the solstice last week at the site.
