Put your winter clothes on and come out to enjoy the first day of winter at the Winter Solstice Sunrise Program at Fort Ancient. Guests will learn about the archaeoastronomy of the site and how it related to the people who made this world class site 2,000 years ago. Participants will align themselves between a stone capped mound and an opening within the earthen walls and watch the sun rise to greet you, as it did for the Ancient Ones who traveled great distances to observe for ceremony. A true educational program you do not want to miss.
