Reviews of the 2021 Online Conference

"The conference was awesome! All speakers and the managing of the online event was amazing. You should be so proud of yourselves." Michelle & Ronan

"I thought it was really good and enjoyed it a lot. The sound was very clear and it seemed as though everything went like clockwork, great line-up of speakers too. It's a really good way for people who maybe cannot get to the conference at Glastonbury to be able to attend the conference virtually." Muriel

"The conference was excellent. The web medium seemed to raise the level to a slick professional production, not to mention the fine quality of ALL contributions." Nicola

"Thanks very much for a wonderful weekend! I enjoyed it very much" Aaron "I so enjoyed the conference! Didn’t watch it all, but what I did was really inspiring and the whole event had such a reassuring flavour of something familiar and friendly... You get better and better at presentation Hugh! Thank you so much for making it all possible." Karen

"I'd just like to repeat what a great job you did organising the conference and how I felt you were serving a greater cause. It was a very interesting melting pot which left no one indifferent." Howard

"Thank you for a rich & wonderful conference that I attended from my New Mexico home." Christine "It was a great thought provoking event, I enjoyed a lot." Elena

"That was an excellent weekend. My first such experience and thoroughly enjoyable. It has encouraged me to further delve into this and so, thank you very much. Amazing." Rich

"I think you’ve done a wonderful job in organising it and for this year keeping the Megalithomania conference alive. Well done to you and to everyone who helped and participated!" Henry

"This was one of the most significant and meaningful conferences I've yet to attend." Alison "Thank you so much, Hugh! So happy with the content I was able to watch from the US." Rhonda

"Really enjoyed it – all the speakers were excellent and it worked really well online." David "I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the online conference. Fantastic and fascinating. Thanks to you and all the speakers. The spread of speakers was amazing with the different perspectives and theories being presented." Daniel

"You are to be congratulated for what was clearly a very shipshape and copper bottomed happening at MegMania 2021. I thoroughly enjoyed the few presentations I managed to catch. A lot of fun. The emails I've had also suggest that many others had a great experience." Robin

"I had been wanting to get over to England for the Megalithomania conferences for years now and finally, due to a pandemic, I get to partake from the ease of my home! Thank you for all the trouble to set the conference on zoom. I had been interested in the depth of rigour the researchers were going to and I am completely pleased! I love the incorporation of everyone's ideas, with the respect toward each other of "accept it or not, no worries" without the need to control the message that I feel in other archaeoastro and archaeo conferences. I have never desired to go with other folks on tours, but now that I see what a lovely personality you have, so willing to share the joy of exploration with everyone, I look forward to booking a tour in 2022 and coming to the live Megalithomania as well. Again, THANK YOU! You are aiding in the preservation and re-instatement of knowledge in the minds of us Earth folk. Very impressive." Ivy

"What a splendid job that you and your colleagues did this weekend with Megalithomania. Congratulations." Terence

"The conference was brilliant, thank you again to all." Catherine
