Hugh Newman is an author, speaker, world explorer, tour host, and co-founded Megalithomania conferences and tours. He travels widely and has researched the geodetic connections between sites worldwide, as well as detecting earth energies and unusual archaeoastronomical alignments. As an author he has researched the Indigo child phenomenon and published a book on the subject. His most recent book, Earth Grids has been published by Wooden Books. He has released numerous DVDs of his multi-media presentations. He has articles published in the Leyhunter, Mindscape Magazine, World Explorer Magazine, the Circular, thee Spiral, thee Heretic, New Dawn (Australia) and numerous other publications. He has spoken at events in the UK, Malta, France, Peru, Egypt, Bosnia, Australia, South Africa, Mexico and North America. He has appeared on BBC TV, Sky Channel 200, Bosnian TV and the History Channel in the last three seasons of Ancient Aliens (that is currently being aired on History 2). His forthcoming book on stone circles is the theme of his talk at CPAK in 2014. www.megalithomania.co.uk/hughnewman.html
Talk 1: Planetary Grids & Earth Energies: The Ancient Enchantment of the Landscape
Is there a geometrical energy system that surrounds our planet? … a super grid involving polyhedral forms, ley lines, earth energy currents, cymatics and archaeoastronomical alignments? Prehistoric maps reveal that the ancients were surveying the Earth in the distant past and there is good evidence that our ancestors were up to something we have long forgotten. From UFO Flight-paths to anti-gravity and crop circles, the grid has many
astonishing claims attached to it. Hugh has also found evidence in South America that the Michael and Mary energy lines (AKA the Rainbow Serpent) are a global phenomenon and megalithic sites ‘enhance’ these natural energies for various purposes, and even affect consciousness, suggesting ‘fertility’ energy, was used to get into altered states.
Scientific research of crop circles has helped unlock how the ancients used earth mounds, megaliths and magnetic earth energy currents to enhance seeds, promote fertility, and re-mineralise their food. With dowsing, the ancients could even locate underground water, test for poisonous foods and locate magnetic and telluric lines of energy. Stone circles and dolmens acted at electrifiers to enhance seed quality and yield, and even helped
keep us humans fertile, as many of the global legends state. There is new evidence that agriculture and civilization succeeded soon after the construction of megalithic sites & pyramids. Hugh will also discuss the work of John Michell to analyse if all this was done for more spiritual purposes, to create ‘enchantment’ across entire countries based upon the above principles.
Talk 2: The Megalithic Giants: The Lost History of a Forgotten Race
Stone circles, pyramids, earthworks and other ancient sites often have legends of giants who built them. For a long time, it was thought these were simply fairy stories or folklore. However recent research in to old documents, newspapers, journals, first hand reports and old photos, now suggest that these may have been a reality. There are several accounts in the Bible referencing giants, and now there are skeletal remains that match some of those stories. Stonehenge was once called ‘The Giants Dance’ and it was said that Merlin summoned giants from Ireland to help him build it. Now there are archaeological reports from the area that support this. In South Africa, there is a giant footprint nearly five-feet long. But it is the discoveries in North America that have created a huge controversy, because there are at least 1500 reports of a giant race, some with double-rows of teeth, who ruled the continent since at least 7,000 BC. They were often found in ancient mounds or megalithic sites, and have been reported as going up to a staggering 18 feet tall. Often they have strange bronze armour, perfect teeth, and blond or red hair, suggesting they may not be native to North America. Most reports range the heights between 7ft and 12 ft, but it still doesn’t answer the question of why this part of history has been so meticulously covered up. From New England, to Miami, Ohio and California, these giant skeletons have been dug up in their thousands, yet the Smithsonian Institution got involved and they mysteriously vanished. The Native American NAGPRA Act of 1990 removed the final bones from museum displays, so there is now little evidence to go on, but the reports, photos and eye-witness accounts, even from Abraham Lincoln and other luminaries, suggest that the history books are on the verge of being rewritten. Hugh will also look at giant footprints, six-toed giants, and horned and elongated skulls, as these are often associated with the giants and are found at ancient sacred sites. Hugh will give us a whirlwind tour worldwide, focussing those discovered in the vicinity of ancient sites
