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.
