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.

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

Vallée aux Noirs engravings

Schistose pelite axehead found in inhumation grave at Buthier, Ile-de-France close to these carvings, see comment for more. A campaign to record engravings of Neolithic axes in the Massif de Fontainebleau, south of Paris, in June 2013 led to the discovery of a large panel of engravings consisting of a hafted axe with a crook handle, an anthropomorph, and two motifs that we have provisionally interpreted as boats.

Rakhigarhi

In Haryana lies the largest Harappan site which could be the origin of civilisation.. Ancient Town in Haryana. Multiple 5000 year old hamlets, collectively called, Rakhigarhi, make up one of the largest Harappan (Indus Valley) civilisation sites found outside of Mohenjodaro. The site is now thought to cover 350 hectares.

Pierre du Diable (Haillot)

. Standing Stone unearthed in the summer of 2007, during urbanization works, re-erected in its original pit on the 23th of September 2007. Abundantly documented by the local press at that time - see several links below.

Standingstone Rigg

. Standingstone Rigg is an apparently little-known stone row, west of Simonburn village. A recent volunteer survey by Tynedale Archaeology Group tells us that the stone row runs 134m in a north-north-east/south-south-west in a double alignment up the scarp slope of Standingstone Rigg (Ridge).

Elburton Burial Mound

Petition set up to protect Bronze-Age burial mound in Plymouth, see the comments on our page for all the details. A large round barrow attached to a flat cemetery. The cemetery contained Bronze Age burials in urns. An application for scheduling by English Heritage has been turned down.
