MAGICIANS OF THE GODS
Hancock is the most familiar face in the ancient mysteries subject, and in November
he returns to the Origins conference to present his compelling evidence for the
existence of a lost civilization existing at the time of the last Ice Age that
was obliterated in the wake of a comet impact that devestated the world around
10,900 BC. Thereafter the first megalithic stone monuments began to appear in
the world. Gunung Padang, Gobekli Tepe, Stonehenge, the Great Sphinx, and even
the newly discovered stone circle located beneath the waters of Lake Michigan.
All of these stone structures and many more were created as a response to what
had just happened to the world, their existence paving the way for the foundation
of our own civilization in the wake of the Neolithic revolution some 11,500 years
much anticipated new book Magicians of the Gods is published in September 2015,
and ample opportunity will be given for him to sign copies for the Origins Conference

MYSTERY OF GUNUNG PADANG AND THE REALITY OF PLATO'S STORY OF ATLANTIS
geologist Danny Natawidjaja has caused controversy with his findings with respect
to the megalithic site of Gunung Padang in Indonesia's West Java province.It consists
of a series of stone settings and rock mounds made from long Andesite columnar
blocks situated on five stepped terraces, which grave the apex of a huge hill.
The monuments you see today are mainly from around around 600 BC at the height
of what is known as the Metal Age (the equivalent to our Bronze and Iron Ages
combined), yet beneath the current structures are rows and groupings of further
columnar blocks that Danny and a multidisciplinary team suspect were placed down
as part of a much older structure built in stages, much like the pyramid structures
of Central and South America. Radiocarbon dating of the next layer down from the
surface (layer 2) has revealed radiocarbon dates in the range of 5000 BC, while
those of an even lower level have provided dates that suggest the presence of
a built structure prior to 8000 BC. Indeed, some dates indicate the presence of
an even deeper level going back even further, with indications that something
existed on the spot as much as 14,000 years ago.

Hilman will outline his incredible work at Gunung Padang, showing the timeline
of its different phases, and revealing the real secret of the monument - the hidden
chamber at the core of the hill, which is thought to surround a volcanic lava
tube. This has been detected by geomagnetic, geophysical and georadar surveys,
and its discovery might well equal the discovery of the Hall of Records at Giza

Padang, Gobekli Tepe & Our Descent From the Stars
Collins at Petra
Collins (born 1957), writer, explorer, international
lecturer and author of books that challenge the way we see the past, including
The Cygnus Mystery (2006), From the Ashes of Angels (1996), and
Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods (2014).
the past year Andrew has been travelling the world exploring the greater antiquity
of prehistoric sites from Gobekli Tepe in southeast Anatolia to Gunung Padang
in Indonesia's West Java province, Mount Carbon in West Virginia and Peru's Tiahuanaco.
This work forms part of his new book project showing that hybridization between
different types of archiac and more modern humans gave rise to civilization tens
of thousands of years earlier than what history suggests. He reveals the fruits
of his endeavours and begins to build a picture of a global belief in the importance
of the northern heavens, in particular the Milky Way and Pole Star. These were
personified as a primeval goddess of life. Although she takes many forms, this
stellar goddess is primarily associated with key Pole Stars of the distant past,
such as Deneb in Cygnus and Vega in the constellation of Lyra. As the so-called
Weaver Princess of Island Southeast Asia she is said to have mated with a supernatural
or heavenly dog to give birth to the human race. It is a tradition that can be
traced from Java all the way across to China and Tibet. Andrew reveals the true
origins of these strange beliefs in a supernatural ancestors, tracing its origins
to the indigenous peoples of Lake Baikal in southern Siberia. They for millennia
have believed in their descent from a supernatural wolf. Why? Why a wolf? Andrew
explains in this brand new lecture.

of architect Nicholas Hawksmoor (1661-1726), information that inspired Alan Moore's
classic From Hell (adapted into movie of the same name starring Johnny Depp).

and also the locations of the five known Ripper murders. Have a drink in the Ten
Bells pub, which features heavily in the Ripper story.
