Welcome to megalithomania

We are now planning the 2015 Megalithomania Conference in Glastonbury, UK (after a much needed year off!). It will take place on the weekend of 9th-10th May, but we are contemplating moving the event to Glastonbury Town Hall. As you may have attended the conference over the years, would you please respond to this email (info@megalithomania.co.uk) and briefly answer these questions:

1) Would you like to see us move to the Town Hall, or rather stay in the Assembly Rooms? and why?
2) Would you prefer a one-day conference, rather than our usual two-day event?
3) Where would you like to do day-tours to, on the Monday after the conference?
4) Are there any speakers you would really like to see at the conference?

Thank you. Any response would be highly appreciated.

I am currently writing a series of articles for the 'Ancient Origins' website about the secrets of the megalithic quarries. The first one is about Gobekli Tepe, and the second one looks at a new 1000 ton block that has been discovered in the quarry at Baalbek. One of them looks at the 10,500 year-old Karahan Tepe, that is the sister site to Gobekli Tepe. My latest article is about the megalithic quarries at Aswan in Egypt, that contains the famous 1168 ton Obelisk. View it here. Plus below is my new video from my two visits there in 2010 and 2012. There are several more articles coming soon, so keep an eye on www.ancient-origins.net.

Andrew Collins and I are also proud to announce the ancient mysteries event of the year - the Origins 2014 conference to be held in London on Saturday, November 15th and Sunday, November 16th. The Saturday conference will feature presentations from Professor Irving Finkel ("The Ark Before Noah"), Robert Temple (The Sirius Mystery Revisted), Brien Foerster via Skype from Peru (The Mystery of the Long Headed Elites, and the latest DNA Evidence on the Paracas Skulls), Manjir Samanta Laughton ("Black Holes and the Origins of Civilization"), Hugh Newman ("The Megalithic Giants: The Lost History of a Forgotten Race"), and Andrew Collins ("Rise of the Human Hybrids and the Mysteries of Göbekli's sister site, Karahan Tepe"). Venue is, as for Origins 2013, Steiner House, London NW1. Basic tickets are £48, plus there is an optional London Walkabout around the British Museum on the Sunday. For all details and to register immediately:

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

Cueva Negra

Rock-shelter in Spain shows evidence of early human use of fire, see the comment on our page. A large rock shelter above the Rio Quípar (Murcia), facing north. Initially explored in 1981, extensive excavations starting in 1990 discovered features and artifacts showing that early man, dating back 780,000 years, used fire and had a mastery over several stone tool designs.

Helgoland Steinkiste

. The bronze aged stone cist of Helgoland was discovered in 1892 during an examination of a round barrow named Lütge Berg (meaning "small mountain"). At that time the latter barrow had been the last remaining of a former cemetery at Helgoländer Oberland, the high plain of the main island. The cist itself was comparatively well preserved.

Robin Hood's Stride

Equinix sunrise photos, but a thoughtlessly parked trailer spoiled the view at nearby Nine Stones Close.. This imposing outcrop, also known as Mock Beggar's Hall, provides a spectacular backdrop for the Nine Stone stone circle. There is a great view of the circle from the top of the outcrop as well as the nearby hillfort of Cratcliff Rocks.

Qubur Juhhal Beehive Tombs

. 21 Beehive tombs dating to 3rd Milenium BCE in Ancient Magan, now Oman, which traded Copper and Diorite with the Sumerians. Unexcavated at the time of listing in 1987. Photos by Drew Parsons

Tel Burna

Ancient cult may have worshipped the storm god in central Israel. Ancient Settlement in Israel. "The site of Tel Burna is located in the Shephelah region, which served as a border between the kingdoms of Judah and Philistia in the Iron Age. A fertile area that supported agricultural production, the region became known as the breadbasket of the south and as suggested before by some scholars

Roughtor long cairn

. Almost 500 metre long stone bank structure, 5 - 8 metres wide and with facing slabs lining its edges, on the northern slopes of Rough Tor. Originally thought to be a sort of boundary structure, an investigation by TimeTeam in 2007 showed it to be more of a cairn type feature.
