Stonehenge 2014 Spring Equinox - Druid Ceremony

Happy Equinox Megalithomaniacs! We took an early morning drive to Stonehenge to meet up with Druids, Pagans, and around 300 megalithomaniacs to celebrate the Spring Equinox. There are changes afoot at Stonehenge, with a new visitor centre, the car park being 'grassed over' and the now blocked road. Basically you now have to walk over a mile from the entrance to the stones, or get a laid-on shuttlebus. It was a cold morning, but we managed to meet up with archaeologist Julian Richards to discuss the new scanning of the stones that has revealed more enigmatic carvings (video on that coming soon). We also chatted with Arch-druid Rollo Maughfling, and witnessed a powerful ceremony from Arthur Pendragon, who are both doing all they can to keep access open at these turnings of the year, and protect the site from any possible threat. I caught up with my colleague, archaeo-astronomer Simon Banton, about the proposed housing near Larkhill military base, that is directly on the viewing line of the Summer Solstice sunrise from Stonehenge. This planning oversight needs to be stopped so please make your opinions count here: www.gov.uk/government/consultations/salisbury-plain-training-area-master-plan-army-basing-programme - email the MOD directly at: DIO-ArmyBasing@mod.uk to protect the sunrise alignment

Hugh Newman interviews Jim Vieira: Giants on Record in North America

Since 2008 I have been researching Giant reports, most notably in North America. After reading Ross Hamilton's classic 'A Tradition of Giants' about the 7ft - 12ft giants who ruled the Ohio area of North America (often with double-rows of teeth), I became fascinated how myths and legends may actually be true, and give a clue to who built these sites. Since then researchers like Jim Vieira have found around 1500 reports of this unknown race from reputable newspapers, science journals, town histories and private letters. Many were excavated from ancient mounds, and some from megalithic sites. This is the first part of an hour-long interview I did with Jim last October when I was in New England (see below). It includes interviews with Andrew Collins, and also Peter Anick from the New England Antiquities Research Association. Check out my extensive travel blog around the 'Mounds, Megaliths and Giants of North America': http://megalithomania-america.blogspot.co.uk/

Göbekli Tepe, Turkey, with Graham Hancock, Andrew Collins & Hugh Newman on the 'Origins' Tour 2013

This video was filmed and edited by Hugh Newman on the 'Origins of Civilization' tour organised by Megalithomania and Andrew Collins, with special guest Graham Hancock in September 2013. Gobekli Tepe is said to be up to 14,000 years old and could rewrite human history. Please join Andrew and Hugh, with special guest Brien Foerster in May 2014 to explore further: www.megalithomania.co.uk/originstour2014.html

Hugh Newman Explores the Stone Spheres of Costa Rica

This video is the first part of a small series on the megalithic spheres of Costa Rica. This one focuses on the Museums and Parks of San Jose. Hugh recently travelled to Costa Rica to explore the enigmatic stone spheres that have been discovered there over the last century. Ranging from the size of footballs to 9ft in diameter, and often perfectly carved, these spheres have left archaeologists and researchers baffled as to who built them, how and why. The opening scene of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' showed Indiana Jones running down a tunnel to escape from one of them, but rather than a booby-trap set by the ancients, it has been revealed that these may have been more to do with geomancy, navigation, alignments and astronomy. Over the next few episodes, Hugh will look at other similar spheres that have been discovered in southern Costa Rica and around the world and give an historical overview of the strange 'marbles of the gods' (as David Hatcher Childress named them).
