Welcome to megalithomania

The 2017 MEGALITHOMANIA CONFERENCE is taking place in the Town Hall in Glastonbury on 20th-21st May, with three days of tours (on the Friday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday). See the full line-up and get tickets here

 

Sillustani is a Chullpa Tower site on the edge of Lake Umayo near Lake Titicaca in Peru. Sillustani is thought to be built by the Kolla Culture around 1000 AD, but the site has been occupied since 7000 BC. Some of the Chullpa (funerary) towers were constructed by the Inca, but the intricate carving is very similar to Gobekli Tepe in Turkey c.11,500 BC and features various animals and serpents in relief. The museum also has three elongated skulls and mummified burials.

 

In this Megalithomania video Hugh Newman interviews archaeologists Mike Parker Pearson and Julian Richards and discusses the Durrington Walls dig with archaeoastronomer Simon Banton. Includes aerial footage of the site.

 

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

Ringval Mlýnek

All over the western parts of Bohemia it is possible to encounter enigmatic circular earthen constructions of obviously ancient origin. They are called "Ringvaly", an expression adapted from the German word "ringwallinsel". Despite the fact that some of these structures were certainly used still in medieval times, their origin, age and purpose remains a mystery.

Duloe

Geophysical Survey of Duloe Stone Circle finds likely cist in the centre and other new features, more details in the comment on our page. The eight large and stunningly white quartz stones that make up this oval-shaped circle vary up to 2.6m (8 feet 6 inches) in height. The largest weighs about 12 tons and is located in the south.

Weatherhill Henge

Weatherhill (or Everleigh) henge is a Neolithic Scheduled Monument on part of Salisbury Plain used by the MOD. The henge is demarcated by posts, painted white at the top in order to be clearly visible to tanks both day and night.

Harput Relief

Sculptured Stone in Elazığ Province, Turkey. A relief recently discovered during afforestation work in the Harput district may date back to 2000 BCE based on its artistic style.

Dunmore Standing Stones

Standing Stones in Co. Derry. This is simply marked down as a Standing Stone on my OS Map, but it looks more like the remains of something more.
