Welcome to megalithomania

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2015 Megalithomania Conference in Glastonbury, UK. It took place on Saturday 9th May at Glastonbury Town Hall with a distinguished line-up of Megalithomaniacs, plus extra activities on the Friday and Sunday. We have lots of photo's and the videos are coming soon. Here are a few here!

We are now planning our big London Conference co-organised with Andrew Collins called the Origins Conference. It's at the Arts Two theatre in Queen Mary University of London. This short video introduces the Origins 2015 event, scheduled for Saturday, November 7th at this venue. Speakers include Graham Hancock, Lynn Picknett, Clive Prince, Danny Hilman Natawidjaja, Jim Vieira, Andrew Collins and myself. Plus there will be a Sunday walkabout around London's East End seeing the sites there, where Andrew shall be talking about its pentagonal geometry, the Hawksmoor churches, and the Jack the Ripper mystery. Full details and early-bird tickets here

 

Ggantija is Gozo's primary sacred site, It dates back to 3600 BC and is an impressive megalithic temple with winter solstice alignments. It was said to be built by giants, with the legend of the Goddess Sansuna, who was said to have built the site, and nearby Sansuna dolmen. It is also connected to nearby (now destroyed) Xaghra Stone Circle and was the oldest free-standing temple on the planet until Gobekli Tepe was discovered.


Anyway, we look forward to seeing you fellow Megalithomaniacs on one of our expeditions or conferences this year and wish you all well.

Anta da Lapeira II

. The Anta da Tapada II is also known as Anta da Lapeira II and is one of the three existing dolmens in the same property. It's located in Pavia from the county of Mora, in the Évora district.

Delamore House dolmen

. I came across this modern dolmen by accident when someone told me about Delamore House near Ivybridge. I see they have an open art exhibition there at the moment, if you're looking for somewhere to visit in Devon or Cornwall.

Wedau

. The barrow cemetery of Wedau is located in Duisburg (North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany) and represents one of the largest ancient cemeteries in Germany. The top image shows some of the Wedau-Urns displayed in the Ruhr Museum Essen. The urn in front contains a "soul-hole". The urns shown here stem from the Late Bronze Age (ca. 750 – 480 BC).

The Ponteland Boulder

. A rock art boulder in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Whilst preparing for building development this large stone or boulder was found in a field near Ponteland, which lies just under 8 miles to the north west of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. It now sits in the gardens of the Great North Museum and displays a number of cup and ring motifs, some combined with surrounding peck marks.
