All at www.megalithomania.co.uk/booking.html. My lecture is scheduled for the Sunday, 9th May, start at 4:30pm and titled, Bluestone Magic: Revealing Waun Mawn
To understand a megalithic landscape, one must focus on the liminal space between sky and landscape, where ‘the above’ meets ‘the below’ at locations where Neolithic folk chose to locate their major temples and other significant monuments. Unfortunately, the techniques required are not those preferred by present day archaeologists.
In his new richly illustrated presentation Robin Heath will share his latest research, which sheds new light on the function and purposes of the Waun Mawn site, in the Preseli region of West Wales, conferring a greater significance onto this monument than previously recognised.
Robin Heath is a seasoned researcher, author and presenter on prehistoric and ancient science, a subject that has become a lost legacy to the modern world but remains built into the design and construction of many megalithic monuments. Robin has written and published nine books, and co-authored a further two.
An engineering graduate, his background has enabled Robin to discover astonishingly elegant qualities in many Neolithic monuments, and reveal in their design an unexpected knowledge of astronomy, geometry and metrology. Robin’s goal is to see this subject incorporated within the history books of the future, a recovered legacy made plain for future generations, and recognised as the vital first chapter in any revised history of science.
Robin has lived for over 35 years in the Preseli National Park of coastal West Wales, 25 years with his wife Tricia.
