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.

Elburton Burial Mound

Petition set up to protect Bronze-Age burial mound in Plymouth, see the comments on our page for all the details. A large round barrow attached to a flat cemetery. The cemetery contained Bronze Age burials in urns. An application for scheduling by English Heritage has been turned down.

Montefi

. Talayotic settlement in Balearic Isles (Menorca / Minorca). This large talayotic settlement is located near the roundabout, east of Ciutadella city centre. The main structures are three talayots preserved in different condition - in the SE tower part of the internal passage is left intact. Around the talayots there are at least eight artificial caves used for burial purposes in the talayotic period. It is possible that the settlement was larger and has been obliterated by the development of surrounding urban areas.

Bernhus

. Stone circle and barrow cemetery in Akershus (Norway). The site consists of a large stone circle and four round barrows. The site is inside a pine forest with low forest vegetation, so the burial mounds and stone circle are easy to observe.

Carschenna

. The prehistoric rock art in Carschenna was discovered in 1965. There are seven carved rocks - majority of the motifs are cup-and-ring marks (including the one with ten rings, one of the largest in Europe), but there are also some animal motifs, including a horse with rider.

Ein el-Jarba

New excavations explore 6,000-Year-Old Settlement in Israel. A 1966 excavation at Ein el-Jarba yielded four phases of Chalcolithic occupation (4000 BCE) with architectural remains (courtyard houses) as well as burials. Ein el-Jarba is located in the Jezreel valley, Israel

Doggerland

Doggerland Catastrophy and Norway Subsea Landslide - Prehistoric North Sea 'Atlantis' hit by 5m tsunami. See latest comment.. At the height of the last Ice Age, Doggerland was dry and stretched from the present east coast of Britain and the present coasts of The Netherlands, Denmark and North Germany. Thus, the so-called land-bridge, was a place where people settled as the ice-sheets wasted and northwestern Europe became habitable once more. But, as the ice-sheets retreated further and sea levels rose, the North Sea encroached on the land, eventually separating the British Peninsula from the mainland.
