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

 

Ggantija is Gozo's primary sacred site, It dates back to 3600 BC and is an impressive megalithic temple with winter solstice alignments. It was said to be built by giants, with the legend of the Goddess Sansuna, who was said to have built the site, and nearby Sansuna dolmen. It is also connected to nearby (now destroyed) Xaghra Stone Circle and was the oldest free-standing temple on the planet until Gobekli Tepe was discovered.


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

Gop Caves

Gop Caves and Cairn inspire song from Emily Portman's new album Coracle. The Gop Caves are surprisingly close to Gop Cairn, from which they can be accessed. Discovered in 1886-7, the caves recess some way into the limestone of Gop Hill.

Bighorn Medicine Wheel

Mfrincu experiences the summer solstice sunrise at the Bighorn Medicine Wheel, see the latest comment on our page for his account. Medicine Wheel in Bighorn County, Wyoming. On a windswept mountain a ring of piled rock 75 feet in diameter surrounds a central cairn. Twenty eight "spokes" of stone connect the two structures. The outer ring of stone is studded with "U" shaped cairns. The largest concentrations of these sun wheel structures are in southern Alberta. Others are larger, but Wyoming's Medicine Wheel enjoys one of the most spectacular locations of any. Medicine Wheel lies on the end of a natural ridge line, at an altitude of over 9600 feet in the Bighorn National Forest

Callanish I

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Calanais Visitor Centre they are holding a music week 28th June to 4th July with a variety of local musicians from 7pm. "The Stonehenge of the North" on the island of Lewis. This main site forms a sort of Celtic Cross shape.

Hattingen Neolithic Settlements

The area of today`s city of Hattingen (North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany) was already populated in the Neolithic period. Several stone tools were discovered throughout the city in the earlier part of the 20th century. However, these findings were made mostly during construction works, which were not followed up by archaeological excavations, so the corresponding house outlines were not found. Of special interest is the battle axe (lower in the picture) found in the city district Holthausen at the coordinates given on this page.

Egtved Girl Barrow

The Bronze Age Egtved Girl found in Denmark originally came from the Black Forest, more details in the comments on our page. Barrow Cemetery in South Jutland (Sønderjylland). Egtved Girl Barrow is a Bronze Age burial site in South Jutland, Denmark. The site is situated in rolling agricultural lands, with grain farming and grazing predominant. Egtved Girl's discovery is noted for its extremely well preserved clothing and other personal remains found in the oak coffin.

Maen Llia

Cerrig captures an aerial view of the stone 'going down to the stream for a drink'. Maen Llia Standing Stone is an elegant and imposing standing stone which is impressively situated in a remote position at the top of the Llia valley, along which it points directly north to south.
