Is there a plan to publish an Anthology of Megalithic Poems somewhere, with just the poetry?

There's been an offer from a publisher to do that Branwen but as long as new additions (old and new) keep coming in we're reluctant to close the door, as it were, with a book.

The Meg Poems idea was first started as a forum thread on The Stones Mailing List in 2004 and then on TMA in March 2005. The Megalithic Poems blog was subsequently launched on the 21st September 2005. Our first poem and perhaps the oldest (1215) on things megalithic is by Layamon describing Stonehenge and beginning -

The stones are great
And magic power they have


Indeed the stones are great, and certainly have had the power to capture the imagination of poets and artists throughout the centuries.

Since 2005 we've added many more poems and images on the megalithic theme in the hope that they'll become a useful resource for those interested in the poetry, art and the history of our megalithic past - none of which would be here, or on the blog, without the remarkable efforts and creativity of those who have written about megaliths or portrayed them in their work - not forgetting of course those who originally conceived and built those amazing structures!
