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

 

In this video Andrew Collins and Hugh Newman visit Sanliurfa Museum that has most of the Göbekli Tepe artifacts and statues. They describe each piece and discuss the similarities to Peru and other ancient cultures. The new and improved "ArcheoPark' museum is now open with many artifacts that have never been on display that is part an upcoming tour in September 2015. www.andrewcollins.com/page/events/Gobekli_break_0515.htm.


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

More evidence of Bronze Age activity on The Roaches as cremation urn is uncovered. The Bawdstone, possible dolmen, near Hen Cloud, The Roaches, Staffordshire GR: SJ009620 This so called ‘dolmen’ was described by antiquarian J.D. Sainter in his book ‘Scientific Rambles Round Macclesfield’ in 1878: "At a short distance south of Rock Hall, there may be observed on the opposite side of Hen Cloud a block of gritstone, which upon approaching it, is found to be rested or balanced, in the first place, upon a short edge of rock and then upon two upright and pointed pillars about eighteen inches in height, which will constitute a dolmen”.
