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.

The megacities of China

. According to research by global consulting firm McKinsey, by the year 2025 it is estimated that China will have 221 cities with over one million inhabitants and an urban population of one billion people. Most of those people are going to be living in megacities such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. In this article we take a look at three Chinese megacities to understand what life is going to be like in the future.
