Mann, Andrew Gough, Kate Masters, Hugh Newman and more. After a weekend of presentations the conference continues into the following week with tours led by key speakers to Dartmoor, Avebury, Glastonbury and a private access visit to Stonehenge with Robin Heath.
Co-author of the book Forbidden Archeology delivers a presentation on the Extreme Antiquity of the Human Race
ROBIN HEATH will talk on the Megalithic Sites of Wales and Bluestone Magic.
Robin will also be leading a private access visit to Stonehenge followed with an excursion to the Cursus, Durrington Walls and Woodhenge on the Friday (11 May) preceding the conference.
Having taken part in one of Robin's visits to Stonehenge and Avebury as part of the Megalithomania 2006 conference this visit is highly recommended so book early to avoid disappointment as places are limited.
