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.

Lundskullen

Could the standing stones of Lundskullen be a calendar?. Standing Stones in Västergötland. Lundskullen is a beautiful burial site with its 40 standing stones visible from the road E20 a few km north of Vårgårda. At the top of the hill lies the largest burial mound. There are further three mounds nearby as well as eighteen stone settings a little further to the south. The grave types indicate that the site was in use during the Vendel period (AD 550-800) and perhaps also early Viking age.

Torastay

. Round cairn in Isle of Lewis with incomplete and topless chamber at roadside. In classic obvious-from-an-estuarine-approach situation.

Gelli-Nedd

. Gelli-nedd is an oval shaped univallate hillfort in Powys, measuring 72m x 60m. The fort is situated on the top of a limestone ridge. The north side is protected by a large rock cut ditch and rampart, and at the north east is an entrance gap 3m wide.

Chactún.

Ivan Sprajc's team finds two more Mayan cities in the Mexican jungle - the top image is of one of these new sites, named Tamchen. Ancient City in Campeche. Archaeologists in a team led by Ivan Sprajc believe that the previously unknown city dates between 600 and 900 AD. The site covers more than 22 hectares. Monuments with inscriptions, pyramids, ballcourts, residential areas.

Hogtivis Stone

. Early Christian Sculptured stone in Pembrokeshire. Situated in the corner of the churchyard, lodged snugly against the bank between the church yard and the car park, and tucked between two graves. It has obviously been used as a gatepost at some time, with several holes, some still containing metal pins.

Anta de Adrenunes

. Burial Chamber (Dolmen) in Estremadura and Tejo Valley. The Anta of Adrenunes was classified as a national monument by the Portuguese Institute of Architectural Heritage. Located in the Cabo da Roca area, some sources indicate that it is a dolmen which would have served as a collective necropolis during the megalithic period.
