The annual MEGALITHOMANIA CONFERENCE returns for its fourth convention of the megalithic arts and sciences at The Assembly Rooms, Glastonbury on 23rd & 24th May 2009. This year's line-up includes Graham Hancock, Robert Temple, Christine Rhone, Michael Hodges, Robin Heath and many others. Since it's humble beginnings in 2006, MEGALITHOMANIA has become Europe's foremost assembly of scholars, authors and researchers on all things megalithic. The varied subjects blend academic disciplines with cutting-edge research from a variety of fields, including archaeoastronomy, geomancy, archaeoacoustics, geodesy, earth energies, navigation and geometry.

The pioneer of the earth mysteries renaissance, John Michell, passed away on Friday 24th April at 12.30am, so we are dedicating the conference to his memory. He was the main inspiration for creating the event, and even gave us permission to use the Megalithomania name (from his 1982 book). He has been involved in the first three events since its inception in 2006 and will be greatly missed by us all. The speakers forum on the Sunday afternoon will be about his life and work and how he has inspired generations of Megalithomaniacs with his cutting-edge discoveries, original ideas and visionary understanding of the ancients. There will be contributions from John Martineau, John Neal, Jamie George, Christine Rhone, Robin Heath and several others who were close to John.

A total of thirteen talks and one film screening are planned for the conference with book signings, a megalitho-market place, an extensive art exhibition and Glastonbury town on the doorstep of the venue. Tickets for the conference are £80/£45 day/£7 single talks. Field trips to Stonehenge and Avebury will take place on the Friday and Monday with ROBIN HEATH. There are still places available on these.
