Revelations in the fields of archaeoastronomy, geomancy, mathematics, ley alignments, sacred geometry and other cutting-edge disciplines are helping rewrite our own history, but are often completely overlooked by the academic world.
Many people want to know where we came from and connect to our ancestors so we hope that this annual event can be part of that process. Here is a short history of the conference...." [Read Article HERE] ..."

Stonehenge was built as a dance arena for prehistoric raves, a university professor believes. (January 05, 2009. The Sun)... "Dr. Rupert Till, who is also a part-time DJ, carried out experiments that he says showed the 5,000-year-old stone circle is ideal for listening to “trance” music.
