Prehistoric Stone Circles Around the World
In this lecture, founder of Megalithomania and ancient sites explorer Hugh Newman, reveals how recent discoveries in Britain are confirming what Prof. Alexander Thom said all along - that stone circles are astronomically aligned, are part of a greater geodetic survey, encode sophisticated measurement systems, and were built using advanced geometry. Over 1000 stone circles have been recorded in Britain, but sites such as Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, Carahunge in Armenia, and Msoura in Morocco, are rewriting the dating and origins of the stone circle builders. These rings of stone have now been recorded worldwide, including in countries such as Peru, Argentina, North America, South Africa, Nubia, Gambia, Australia, Japan, France and across most of Europe (often called 'Cromlechs'). We will take a look at who may have built them, and why. The purpose of stone circles will also come under the spotlight in this presentation, as subtle earth energies, underground water, and unusual geology, as recorded by scientists such as John Burke, have been detected at these sites. The positioning of the sites in relation to other sites within the landscape, suggest their geomantic location was also an integral part of their design. Hugh will also look at the early theories, interpretations, folklore, and effects these circles have had on antiquarians, artists and researchers since they were put back in the spotlight by John Aubrey and William Stukeley in the 1600's and 1700's, with some of their early insights now being confirmed by modern science.
