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.

Rumanedda Nuraghe

Nuraghe in Sardinia (Sardegna). Although Nuraghe Rumanedda is a single-towered structure, it is a very interesting one. Besides mostly preserved tholos chamber with three niches and a staircase which opens left of the entrance, the tower has a second staircase which starts above the entrance, as well as a small room (mezzanino) which is located above the ground floor chamber and below currently inexistent second floor chamber. This architectural solution is very rare and occurs mostly in the north-central part of Sardinia.

Buchenloch Hoehle

The Buchenloch cave in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany was inhabited by Neanderthals in the Palaeolithic. Its occupation continued through the Neolithic to the Iron Age - some artefacts from these periods have been found.

St Peter's Minster (Conisbrough)

St Peter's Minster at Conisbrough is a 12th-15th century church, 4 miles NE of Rotherham, South Yorkshire. It stands on an Anglo-Saxon site. In the church there are two early Medieval grave slabs, which once made up a tomb-chest.

Nécropole du Ravin des Arcs

Barrow Cemetery in Languedoc:Hérault. The Necropole Ravin des Arcs consists of a group of 11 protohistoric tumuli of the Iron Age (725-450 BC). They are constructed of dry stones (25 cm - 1 m high) and have a variable diameter (2-10 meters).

Windmill Hill (Avebury)

Prehistoric Sex Objects: The Phalli of Windmill Hill, a fascinating talk by Helen Wickstead given at TAG 2016 with a brief overview of some of her current research - see the latest comment on our page. Neolithic Causewayed Enclosure in Wiltshire. Owned by The National Trust, Windmill Hill lies close to the village of Avebury in Wiltshire and is the site of a Neolithic Causewayed Enclosure. The hilltop is enclosed by three ditches.

Weston Hill Henge

The remains of a henge, around 65m in diameter. From the ground there's not much to see, just a raised flattened dome around 1m high. From the air - see drone video - the shape really shows quite well, even on a dull day such as when this was filmed. The opposing entrances are clearly visible from the air, especially the eastern entrance.
