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). ACT QUICKLY AS ONLINE BOOKING CLOSES AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, but tickets will be available on the door on Saturday from 9.30am! 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.

Noeddale Domus de Janas

Rock Cut Tombs in Sardinia (Sardegna). The necropolis of Noeddale is one of the most significant pre-Nuragic sites in the area of Ossi. It consists of at least six Late Neolithic rock-cut tombs, two of which are decorated with parietal art. They are carved in a rocky slope and a cliff which face the west.

Ordrup Langdysse 1

Langdysse (Long Barrow) in Holbæk

Green Plain settlement

Ancient Settlement in North Yorkshire. Possibly mediaeval but could be Bronze Age according to Eric Cowling, the author of Rombald's Way - A Prehistory of Mid-Wharfedale. Various circular walled structures and some linear ones with right angles.

Cairnpapple Hill

Cairn and Henge in West Lothian. A fine site in the Bathgate hills with excellent views in all directions, marred only by the presence of a telecom mast in the next field. The reconstruction is unusual in that it attempts to show all four phases of the site, so it appears rather confused on first viewing.

Wayland's Smithy

A remarkable encounter with a mouse at the entrance of Wayland's Smithy. This long barrow lies in a plantation of trees on the famous Ridgeway, not far from the Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire. Footpaths lead to the site from both the Uffington Castle carpark and the B4000 which crosses the Ridgeway around a kilometre away.

Tinkinswood

A large fire has recently been made within the Tinkinswood burial chamber. See link from Glamorgan Gem. Chambered Cairn in South Glamorgan. This chambered long cairn is covered by an almost rectangular mound, which has a stone cist half way along the northern side. It has a forecourt to the east created by the horns of the cairn, allowing entrance to the main burial chamber.
