Equinox Sunrise Alignement at the Cambridge City, Indiana Henge

Equinox Sunrise Alignement at the Cambridge City, Indiana Henge

The southern work is aligned to the Equinox sunrise.  The northern work's gateway is aligned to the summer solstice sunrise.

The southern work, despite being continually farmed, is still visible in this field. The size of this work was 210 feet in diameter or 660 feet in circumference, the same as henges at Mounds State Park, The Junction Group in Chillicothe, Ohio and at Athens County, Ohio.


Aerial photo from 1993 showing the two henges.  Note the black spots in the interior platforms that show burial mounds were once present.
