Epic!

Well, cool certainly. Apparently some folks up in Raufarhöfn, Iceland had an idea to attract tourists. (One can see why they'd want them - the place is precariously near the Middle of Nowhere.) They're building a henge. In fact they've got enough of it built already to have fun with the alignment of the cluster of pointers, as noted in today's Astronomical Photo of the Day. Alas, I can't read most of the home site as it's in Icelandic, but the pictures are interesting and Google Translate makes the text into semi-readable gibberish. If anybody knows where I can get the pdf translated could you tell me? Though I daresay properly translated it'll be a deal less fascinating.
