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.

Kasta Hill Macedonian Tomb

. A large Macedonian tomb recently excavated near Amphipolis, Northern Greece. Two caryatids (sculpted female figures) of exceptional artistic value have been unearthed, further supporting the view that the monument is of major importance.

Achaidh Chambered Cairn

Chambered cairns in the woods walk coming up on October 8th 2014. The Woodland Trust Scotland will be visiting several cairns that we barely have any details of if anyone is free and in the area. A final event for Scottish Archaeology Month.. A short horned cairn in Sutherland of Orkney-Cromarty type, with a polygonal chamber. It now reaches a maximum height of only 5ft behind the chamber.

Dun Bornaskitaig

. Image by Hamilton. The remains of a broch on the Isle of Skye. There are visible traces of the outer wall with an entrance and a gallery. A rectangular building of later date is located on top of the broch mound.

Escomb Cross

. There are numerous fragments of early Christian crosses and carvings dating from the 6th to 10th century in this County Durham church.

Saruishi (in Asuka)

. Four of the five strange statues dug out from a rice field near the tumulus of the Kinmei-Tennō (欽明天皇陵)in 1702, thought to have been carved in the 7th century, and now placed in another tumulus at Kibitsuhime-miko (吉備姫王墓) nearby.

Edderton 1

Free guided walk to the Edderton Pictish Symbol Stones on Saturday September 27th as part of Scottish Archaeology Month, see the comment on our page for more details. The Edderton Class I Pictish symbol stone, pointed at the top, stands in a field close to this Highland village. It is a red-sandstone pillar stone standing 10 foot high and dating from the 5th-7th century AD.
