Welcome to megalithomania

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2015 Megalithomania Conference in Glastonbury, UK. It took place on Saturday 9th May at Glastonbury Town Hall with a distinguished line-up of Megalithomaniacs, plus extra activities on the Friday and Sunday. We have lots of photo's and the videos are coming soon. Here are a few here!

We are now planning our big London Conference co-organised with Andrew Collins called the Origins Conference. It's at the Arts Two theatre in Queen Mary University of London. This short video introduces the Origins 2015 event, scheduled for Saturday, November 7th at this venue. Speakers include Graham Hancock, Lynn Picknett, Clive Prince, Danny Hilman Natawidjaja, Jim Vieira, Andrew Collins and myself. Plus there will be a Sunday walkabout around London's East End seeing the sites there, where Andrew shall be talking about its pentagonal geometry, the Hawksmoor churches, and the Jack the Ripper mystery. Full details and early-bird tickets here

 

In this video Andrew Collins and Hugh Newman visit Sanliurfa Museum that has most of the Göbekli Tepe artifacts and statues. They describe each piece and discuss the similarities to Peru and other ancient cultures. The new and improved "ArcheoPark' museum is now open with many artifacts that have never been on display that is part an upcoming tour in September 2015. www.andrewcollins.com/page/events/Gobekli_break_0515.htm.


Anyway, we look forward to seeing you fellow Megalithomaniacs on one of our expeditions or conferences this year and wish you all well.

Israel - Explore the historical places in the country

Israel is one of the top destinations in the world to visit, tourists from different parts of the world travel to this historic place, which is not only known for its historical monuments but is of course also a sacred destination for Christians, Muslims and Jews. Here we present a guide to some of the best ancient sites to visit. Follow the links for more information on each site on the Megalithic Portal.

Slieve Gullion

Volunteers help repair this ancient cairn, see the latest comments on our page. Apparently the highest passage tomb in all Ireland and well worth the climb. It will take you a good half hour to climb from the small car park halfway around the park's one way loop road. The tomb is situated right on the summit, 570m above sea level with fantastic 360 degree views.

Walton Spire

Relating to the massive wind turbine application on the slopes of Shelfield Hill, which was turned down but has gone to appeal - the Planning Inspector will be on the site next Monday morning at 11.30am - the public are invited to attend.. Walton Spire (sometimes referred to as 'The Nelson Cross' stands on a plateau 2 miles N.E of Nelson, Lancashire, and about half a mile S.W of Castercliffe Hillfort. The spire was erected by the Rev'd R.T.Wroe-Walton of nearby Marsden Hall between 1830-40.
