Thousands of revelers welcome the summer solstice at Stonehenge

You have to think that the police officers tapped to patrol Stonehenge on Friday night were not exactly thrilled.

Some 36,000 self-proclaimed Druids, new agers and revelers swarmed the iconic site to mark the summer solstice — the northern hemisphere’s longest day of the year, notes The Associated Press. Stonehenge, located about 80 miles outside of London, was built in three phases, between 3000 B.C. and 1600 B.C., although researchers still debate its original purpose.

At least for one day, though, revelers used the site to dance, practice yoga, and — revel? Sure, revel. Check out images from the event, below. --Sarah Eberspacher
