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.

Bryn Celli Ddu Cairn

Updates from the ongoing Bryn Celli Ddu cairn excavations, see the comments on our page for more and see also our page for the main Bryn Celli Ddu site for a 'fly-through' created from their laser scan. Remains of the base of a Cairn dating from the Bronze Age, in the field to the southwest of the main Bryn Celli Ddu monument. It can be seen from the path to Bryn Celli Ddu passage mound, and from the top of the mound itself.

Wied Filep B

Burial Chamber (Dolmen) in Malta. By the road from Mosta to Gharghur there are 2 dolmens in a walled enclosure. This is the smaller and less well preserved of the two. See our nearby sites list for the other.

Double Ditch State Historic Site

Work on North Dakota oil pipeline frozen following claims of damage to burial grounds sacred to The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (not Double Ditch State Historic Site but within a few miles). Also news on repairs to flood damage to the state historic site, see the comments on our page. Mandan village site in Burleigh County, North Dakota. An Arkansas University archaeological project in the Double Ditch State Historic Site on the Missouri River near Bismarck, North Dakota has revealed a rampart and ditch defensive system around a Mandan village site.

Hunterheugh 13

Rock Art in Northumberland. This large boulder is decorated with 38-40 cup-marks which run around the edge of its sloping surface. Some of the cups near the western ege of the boulder are connected with grooves.

Der Menhir von Wolfsgruben

The great Menhir von Wolfsgruben stands on a small hill near the lake of Wolfsgruben in Northern Italy. It is a big standing stone (~3m height), nowadays with a second balancing stone on it.

Carn Fadrun

A spectacular fort on the Lleyn Penninsula, Carn Fadrun was also the site of a Norman Castle. It is defended by a dry-stone wall on the summit. A number of round and rectangular huts have been found within, but it is unclear whether these are prehistoric or 12th Century.
