Awe inspiring

La Hougue Bie entrance
It is one of Western Europe's best preserved mounds

The Equinox alignment happens twice a year. La Hougue Bie's entrance points directly east, which enables a beam of sunlight to travel up the passageway to illuminate the chamber deep in the mound.

Today, this natural phenomenon inspires awe, not just among the community at large, but with archaeologists like Olga.

"We are talking about 6,000 years ago. The window into the tomb was set up perfectly, so that the rising sun penetrates not just the front, but all the way back into the terminal cell," she said.
