Hugh Newman explores the rich megalithic culture of New England. The northeastern states of America have a remarkable amount of megalithic structures with some that go back to over 4000 years. Vermont has numerous rock chambers and standing stones that form an archaeoastronomical complex over a broad area. New York state has a mix of earthen mounds, megalithic chambers, giant dolmens and the homestead of Rob Roy, who constructs modern megalithic monuments in his front garden. New Hampshire boasts “America’s Stonehenge”, another archaeoastronomocal complex that stretches back to neolithic times along with a nearby ovoid stone circle and several more chambers. On the coast of Rhode Island, the famous Dighton Rock, with bizarre petroglyphs and images sits inside a newly constructed museum. In Massachusetts, a strange “hill that roars” sits near a selection of megalithic chambers, cairns and mounds of ancient origin. New Jersey, Maine and Connecticut also have numerous ancient sites that cannot be explained by traditional archaeology of North America. There is abundant evidence that this part of the US was visited by advanced civilisations in prehistory that are restored in many of the ancient legends of the area. Hugh explores these theories in detail in a presentation that gives a broad new view of the origins of ancient America.

Hugh Newman, co-founder of the Megalithomania conferences, author of Earth Grids (2008), and regular guest on Ancient Aliens (History Channel), gives an exclusive presentation comparing the carved art and cult structures of Göbekli Tepe in southeast Turkey with the stone art and megalithic complexes of Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Indonesia, and Easter Island (Rapanui). Although separated in time by many millennia, the conclusion that there is some kind of universal origin to all these cultures, linked perhaps by a universal geodetic grid and other long distance alignments, seems inescapable. Serpent symbolism is rife at these sites and Hugh also reveals the connections between these various prehistoric places and legends regarding the discovery of giant skeletons and elongated skulls, suggesting the existence of two or more lost races of human kind. It is a quest that has taken Hugh to dozens of countries over the past ten years, with many of his discoveries being inspired by strange experiences and bizarre synchronicities.

Hugh Newman recently travelled to Costa Rica to explore the enigmatic stone spheres that have been discovered there over the last century. Ranging from the size of footballs to 9ft in diameter, and often perfectly carved, these spheres have left archaeologists and researchers baffled as to who built them, how and why. The opening scene of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ showed Indiana Jones running down a tunnel to escape from one of them, but rather than a booby-trap set by the ancients, it has been revealed that these may have been more to do with geomancy, navigation, alignments and astronomy. Hugh will look at other similar spheres that have been discovered around the world and give an historical overview of the strange ‘marbles of the gods’.
The megalithic architectures of stone circles and temple complexes worldwide skilfully incorporated several distinctive types of earth energies into their foundation plans. Imbuing the site with unseen power, our investigations reveal that earth energies and their manifest patterns, dramatically change the ionic ratios in their immediate vicinity, alter background radiation levels and can influence our consciousness. Our research shows that some megalithic structures, especially dolmens, push energy away from the site as if irrigating the land and remarkably standing stones can change our weight in minutes. We will take a new look at Avebury, Silbury Hill, the Codford Circle, Neolithic roads, dolmens and the Rollright Ring to understand the hidden force emitted by the Earth and dispersed by stone and earth.
