Indiana 200 B.C., Giant's Sun Temple

Ohio 500 B.C.
Giant's Sun Temple 

June 21, 200 B.C. In the predawn darkness hundreds gather at one of the Amorite giant's northern outposts along the St. Joseph River in present northern Indiana. Drums beat as the priests enter the interior platform of the henge and stokes the fires to aid the sun's ascent. The hundreds that have assembled stand with hands outstretched anticipating the sunrise and alignment that marks the longest day when the sun is at its greatest strength. Today, they will use the sun's power to drive out evil spirits, bring fertility to the crops and prosperity to all the people. (Drawing by Joan Butler).
