Welcome to megalithomania

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 and Tuesday). See the full line-up and get LIMITED Early-Bird 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.

Minning Low

Access to Minning Low extended, see the latest comment on our page. Minning Low is the largest and most prominently sited cairn in the Peak District, 2km to the west of Aldwark. Surrounded by a beech plantation 500m to the east of The High Peak Trail between the villages of Parwich and Elton, it is a landmark for miles around.

The Cairns Windwick Bay

Student research piecing together Iron Age life at The Cairns, South Ronaldsay, more details in the comments on our page. The Cairns overlooking Windiwick Bay on South Ronaldsay, Orkney have proved more of a puzzle than usual for the hardy archaeologists, in fact, it's a massive jigsaw puzzle.

Hunnenstein Mittelreidenbach

The menhir on top of the hill between Mittelreidenbach and Schmidthachenbach in Rhineland-Palatinate. One Legend tells that the grave of king Attila the Hun lies below this Menhir (Hunnenstein=stone of the huns). Another describes the stone as a memorial of Mother Hulda.

St. Agnes Well

Details of a recent project to restore St. Agnes Well along with a free iPhone app which tells its history. This is a delightful find, resembling many such sites encountered in Cornwall, the author of a book of Somerset Holy wells (Horne) describes it as "the most beautiful of the Holy wells of Somerset".

Wor Barrow

Britain’s Earliest Mummy and the People of Wor Barrow, see the most recent comment on our page. Long Barrow in Dorset, seemingly the first scientifically excavated long barrow. The barrow was totally excavated in 1893-4 by General Pitt-Rivers in one of the earliest systematic archaeological digs. The barrow was oval in shape with completely surrounding ditches, 45m long and 23m wide and 6m high, aligned along a NE-SW axis.

Ness of Brodgar

The Ness of Brodgar USA and Canada Lecture Tour with Nick Card, February / March 2017, also the Ness of Brodgar Guide Book for sale online and of course Britain's Ancient Capital: Secrets of Orkney continues on BBC2 TV and iPlayer, details in our page comments. A large Neolithic complex on the Brodgar peninsula lies on the low ridge between the Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar.
