The Hounds of the Underworld, Cwn Annwn, enliven the Celtic folk-tales, bounding across the cold night sky in an exhilarating and impressive wild hunt. In Wales, they are said to suddenly appear around St. David's Eve. "…Hath thou never heard lore of Cwn Annan? On a forlorn winter’s night where the moon shines not, do they not come to thee? Ghostly specters, the hounds dance in expectation of the hunt, eyes and ears glow an unearthly crimson. Blood. They writhe and howl in a manner not of mortal dogs. No, these creatures are from the dead, from the world beneath. Running across the night sky, they wait for their masters to call them hither for the hunt. Hath thou never heard the mournful bays they give off in the dead of night? Or thou just gave them off for a mere fancy of the mind, or the whispering winds through tree. Fools notions, I tell thee. Only a fool will take no notice of the tales (Arc Trench) of old. But when the hounds come for thee, thou shall see the undaunted fury that lie behind the scarlet eyes as they wisp the souls of unwary travels on the Hunts night. Only fools will pay no heed to Cwn Annwn."

Dogs were always held in high esteem by the Celts, as a friend and protector. "The Fearsome Battle Hound" is featured in many Celtic myths. In general, hounds were representative of tracking skills, the ability to scent a trail (Scroll Trench) and companionship. The White Hound was a title of honor for Celtic chieftains and representative of the dogs which guarded the lunar mysteries. Dogs were sacred to the fairies of Ireland and Scotland, probably because they were held in high regard by the Tuatha de Danann. Many Celtic myths involve dogs or dog familiars, which belonged to heroic figures or deities, and wars were often fought for and over them. They are also an archetypal symbol of shapeshifters.

Rev Lawrence Washington (1602-1653), the great-great grandfather of George Washington (first President of the United States), acquired Stonehenge from Robert Newdyke in 1628 for a Hound Dog Kennel.
Washington's Hound Dog Kennel (Stonehenge), a formal establishment for the propagation of purebred Hound Dogs, was a state-of-the-art facility in Wiltshire until it was sold in 1678 to the Rev Thomas Hayward.
Doc Garry Denke (1622-1699), the German Catholic historian, antiquarian and dentist, Permitted drilling of Stonehenge's Heelstone Flying Eagle auger core in 1656 from Rev Washington's Hound Dog Kennel.
In 1757 founding father Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) examined Washington's Heelstone Hound Dog above Doc Denke's Heelstone Flying Eagle where Franklin chose the Flying Eagle for the Great Seal.

Artaius is a Celtic epithet applied to the Roman god Mercury during the Romano-
Celtic period. It is known from a single inscription from Beaucroissant in the Isère:
To the august Mercury Artaius, Sextus Geminius Cupitus
(has dedicated this) sacred (stone) in fulfillment of a vow.

I have wondered about the post holes, the so called wood hinge inside of stone hinge. They make me think of a structure found in Germany that was deduced to be part of a lifting crane. I have long suspected that the folks who built stone hinge were a bit more canny about the lifting and setting of stones than current beliefs give them.
The odd little holes in the heel stone make me wonder if they were there to hold a sign or object in place...

I was looking at the heel stone and the part marked human face -
the holes may be attempts to represent something, but not a face... in some ways it resembles the Nebra sky shield... Is it possible those random marks may have some meaning to the ancient sky watchers or are they just the result of erosion and faults in the rock. Have they ever been scraped for traces of either rotten wood or metal?
