The 2018 Summer Lectures Presentation

Learning the Megalithic Language

by Robin Heath

Karen Alexander writes,

If you are wondering how the word ‘megalith’ becomes relevant on a crop circle website, then prepare for a big surprise, as researcher Robin Heath compares the ‘language’ of stone circles with that of crop circles, and finds many more similarities than one might expect. This article also explores the reasons why both subjects remain excluded from within the establishment.

 

The annual Summer Lectures are held during the final weekend in July for the past umpteen years. They are hosted and crisply organised in Devizes by Steve and Karen Alexander, who have decades of experience of organising events and tours. Steve Alexander is also a professional photographer whose name appears on most of the best aerial photographs taken of crop circles from a helicopter.

Although centred around the crop circle phenomenon, and held during that period of the summer when most of these geometric wonders of landscape art appear in our landscape,  often near megalithic sites, the boundaries covered by this international event include the science underpinning megalithic monuments, geometry and number science, and many other of the so-called ‘Cinderella sciences’ that don’t yet fit within the modern scientific paradigm.

Following my 2018 presentation, Karen asked if I would make the text available with many of my original slides, so it would fit within their website – www.temporary temples.co.uk. I agreed and this package has now been launched on the Temporary Temples website. Visit it next!

UPDATE – More spaces available on the Megalithic Tour of the Preselis – March 2019

Local access to the tour at reduced rates. January 23rd 2019

Bookings on this Preseli Tour have now reached eleven, and the allocated accommodation hotel is fully booked up.  However, at a meeting with Ewan Rees, the director of VIP tours, we discussed the possibility of providing a few extra spaces at a reduced rate for locally based folk who might want to attend the tours but otherwise would not require accommodation.  

We have now agreed to make a few more places available for this event,  so if you would like to come along and live within easy reach of the Preseli Hills, then please contact Ewan to discuss the matter, through the VIPWales.co.uk website.

 

I have been approached by VIP Wales and asked if I would guide two of the days of a three day Preseli tour, from Sunday 24th – Wednesday 27th March 2019, organised by Ewan Rees, VIP Wales director and a local National Park warden. I’ve said I’ll do this one so if numbers are above the minimum number of clients it will take place.

I often get asked after lectures if I’ll “let me/us know if I’m ‘doing a tour or presentation’.” , so here is your chance to have both of these options! Cnapan is a traditional restaurant/hotel in the midst of Newport, Pembrokeshire, a delightful little coastal town, famous for its excellent cuisine, estuary walks and superb beaches. The town is right in the midst of ‘bluestone country, and I’ll be helping clients locate, reckon with, understand and enjoy the major megalithic monuments here in their magnificent Preseli landscape.

The website with all the details is https://www.cnapan.co.uk/megathic-tour.html

I’m already looking forward to this event, not least because it will be next March and all this wet, cold, windy and atrociously miserable weather of the past two months will hopefully by then be a distant memory. However it might be wise to make it a rule that nobody mentions the ‘B’ word, as we are all scheduled to leave the EU on the Friday following this tour, and any political griping between clients may find the offenders unceremoniously buried under a dolmen!

To all our readers, may I wish you a moving full moon solstice, and a peaceful season of midwinter festivities.  R
