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.

Konung Hågens Helle

. In the garden area of a local school in Nordland is an enormous stone block. It is almost cubic in shape with large flat sides and a large flat top. It is called Kongssteinen or "Konung Hågens Helle". There are cup marks on top of the flat surface and also a local legend is connected to the stone.

Pahlsdorf Kreuzstein

. Early Christian Sculptured Stone in Brandenburg, Berlin. Cross-stone with an engraved cross and a sword on its front side.

The Ossuary

Penycloddiau

. The hillfort of Penycloddiau in Flintshire covers some 21 hectares with the highest point 440 metres above sea level, and forms part of a chain of hillforts in the Clwydian Range of Mountains. The Bronze Age cairn (pictured) at the north end of the fort was restored in 2010,

Danebury Ring

Copterdrones visit (and fly over) Danebury (below) and Hambledon Hill - new videos.. Hillfort in Hampshire. Danebury is in the care of Hampshire County Council and is easily accessed via signposted footpaths. The hilltop was defended in the 6th century BC with a massive rampart, broken by two gates and divided into two halves by a road in the interior.

Necrópole de Carenque

. Discovered and excavated in 1932 by archaeologist Manuel Heleno these tombs are of great interest for the understanding of mediterranean prehistory. They were classified and protected as a Portuguese national monument in January 20, 1936. The construction and the first deposition of human remains date back to the late Neolithic (3000 BC) when there was already a very evolved agro-pastoral based economy in that area.
