Graham Hancock and his wife Santha will be joining Hugh Newman and myself on the Megalithomania Origins of Civilization tour of Turkey-Gobekli Tepe-Baalbek this September. Certainly they will be there for Gobekli Tepe and Baalbek, and possibly at other sites as well. While he is with us Graham will offer evening lectures to the group and will be fully available for discussion and interaction.
If you have any thoughts of going, make your move now. This is going to be a historical trip for everyone involved, and also VERY popular.

Göbekli Tepe, Turkey and Baalbek
Monday, 9th - Friday, 20th September 2013
Along with our good friends Megalithomania we have put together a twelve-day excursion under the name Origins of Civilization Tour, visiting some of the most important and iconic places in southern and eastern Turkey, with the option afterwards of journeying on to Baalbek in Lebanon. Sites include the Neolithic city of Çatal Höyük, the mountain sanctuary of Nemrut Dag, the Sabian city of Harran, and, of course, Göbekli Tepe. We will also be visiting Cappadocia, the home of the fairy chimneys of Goreme and the vast underground city of Derinkiyu, as well as the 4,000-year-old Hittite cities of Hattusa and Alaca Hoyuk, which contain great walls of polygonal stone blocks. In addition to this there is an initial day of visiting some of the key historical sites of Istanbul, as well as the opportunity to see the famous Whirling Dervishes when staying in the city of Konya in southern Turkey.
Report by Andrew Collins author of From the Ashes of Angels (1996), The Cygnus Mystery (2007) and Beneath the Pyramids (2009)
But what exactly were these stone enclosures used for, and are they aligned to the stars? Already there have been claims they are aligned to Taurus, the Pleiades and Orion. Now ancient mysteries writer Andrew Collins brings you all the answers you need. Having first become interested in Göbekli Tepe back in 2000, he visited there in 2004, and returned there in 2012 in order to fully establish the facts before preparing this crucial new article.

Andrew Collins at Gobekli Tepe, Karahan Tepe, Cayonu, Harran and Sanliurfa in 2004 - A Classic Journey that began the Cygnus Mystery
Read Andrew's record of his journey through southeast Turkey in 2004, visiting Gobekli Tepe years before it because popular, and many other key sites in the region. It was the journey that inspired the writing of The Cygnus Mystery.

GOBEKLI TEPE AND THE GARDEN OF EDEN
"Gobekli Tepe is the greatest challenge to archaeology ever seen" Andrew Collins
Andrew will be making a number of personal appearances to promote the release of LightQuest. For details, click here
In addition to doing some serious promotion of LightQuest, including UK distribution and sales, Andrew is writing new book "Finding Eden: Gobekli Tepe and the Genesis of Civilization". This will include a two-week trek out to eastern Turkey to better explore Gobekli Tepe (where I was in 2004 - see the opening chapters of THE CYGNUS MYSTERY). He is also exploring key sites further east in the vicinity of Lake Van, which as early as FROM THE ASHES OF ANGELS (1996) was identified as the most likely site of the terrestrial Paradise of biblical tradition.
Andrew will afterwards turn his attention once again to Giza's cave world, which should be back in the news come spring 2013. Another book on the subject is planned to coincide with this renewed interest in the subject.
As Greg rightly points out, these Native American beliefs might well help reconcile the seemingly conflicting relationship between the Giza Pyramids and the stars of Orion and Cygnus. Perhaps both constellations played an important role in the ancient stellar religion of the early dynastic Egyptians, just as they did in other parts of the world.
These articles are a taster of a new book being written by Greg as a follow up to his compelling book People of the Web. It will attempt to demonstrate that Orion and Cygnus were seen as the destination of the soul in native American, MesoAmerican and South American cosmological beliefs. He will ask also why these ancient cultures, wise and sophisticated in every respect, came to hold such beliefs. Was it all just in their imaginations, or was there truly some special significance to these selected regions of the night sky concerning the soul's journey to the afterlife?
For this reason, this site will remain quiet during this period.
All news will be channelled through my Facebook page, the link for which is at the top of this page.
Yet for those new to the site, there is still plenty on offer, books, DVDs and a plethora of articles on a multitude of subjects from Atlantis to Angels, and from Tutankhamun to the Caves of Giza's Lost Underworld. Oh, and a few articles on Cygnus, cosmic rays and the origins of human consciousness as well
And coming soon my new book ...

Collins, author The Cygnus Mystery and Beneath the Pyramids, Presents
New Evidence that the Cygnus Star System is Behind a Grand Design or Cosmic Blueprint
Part One of this article we
showed that new calculations reveal how the three "wing" stars of the
Cygnus constellation correlate near perfectly with the positions of the Pyramids
of Giza, both in a vertical and horizontal plane. This raises the question of
whether the Giza pyramid field was created to conform to a grand design, a structral
blueprint, involving the stars of Cygnus in their capacity as representations
of the celestial womb of ancient Egypt's sky-goddess Nuit. Here the soul of the
deceased, as the sun-god, was seen to achieve rebirth.
ONE - IS CYGNUS THE KEY TO UNLOCKING
Collins, author The Cygnus Mystery and Beneath the Pyramids, Presents
Fresh Evidence that the Cygnus Star System is Behind a Grand Design or Cosmic
Blueprint at Giza
New calculations show that the three "wing" stars of the Cygnus constellation correlate near perfectly with the positions of the Pyramids of Giza. Adding to the mystery is the discovery that the same three stars were seen to set down into their corresponding pyramids at the time of their construction, c. 2600-2500 BC. These findings, established by technical engineer Rodney Hale, make it almost certain that the Giza pyramid field was created to conform to a grand design, a structural blueprint, involving the stars of Cygnus in their capacity as representations of the celestial womb of ancient Egypt's sky-goddess Nuit, for it was here that the deceased pharaoh, in his role as her son Osiris, god of the underworld, achieved rebirth and became at one with the stars.
BENEATH THE PYRAMIDS NOW AVAILABLE IN KINDLE
GOBEKLI TEPE IN NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE
12,000-year-old stone temple complex of Gobekli Tepe was featured recently in
Geographic magazine. Accompanied the article, which details the excavations
and possible origins of this extraordinary site, are a series of breathtaking
photos, which are causing quite a stir. One of them shows a rectilinear stone
pillar fashioned into an abstract anthropomorphic, headless figure wearing a complex
belt and animal pelt as a loin cloth. Remember this stone was carved as much as
7,500 years BEFORE the construction of the Great Pyramid or the erection of Stonehenge
in England. No question, we are dealing with the handiwork of a highly sophisticated
culture that must have existed at the end of the last Ice Age. This complex was
not done by simple hunter gatherers, who wanted to put together a clan meeting
point, as has been suggested by scholars. Follow the debate on Andrew's
facebook page regarding the identity of the animals featured on the various
stones at Gobekli Tepe.
Hieroglyphic graffiti has been found behind the secret door in the southern shaft of the Queen's Chamber, inside the Great Pyramid, by a team from the University of Leeds. Robert Bauval talked about it in his lecture in Warsaw over the weekend. Apparently, it could mean something like "emerging into the light", although an exact translation has yet to be published. To read the full story go to the New Scientist website, which the story was broken in the last week of May.
It is one of the hottest subjects in the ancient mysteries subject today. What is Adam's Calendar? Is it really the oldest stone circle in the world? Was it really made by the Annunaki, the alien gods of the Sumerians, as a home base in their quest for earthly gold some 200,000 years ago? Or is it just 75,000 years old, made as a stone calendar aligned to the sun, moon and stars?
Andrew Collins - in South Africa recently for the first Megalithomania conference in that country - joined Adam's Calendar experts Michael Tellinger and Johan Heine, as they attempt to convince him of the site's extreme antiquity. Andrew also explores just a few of the hundreds of thousands of ancient stone ruins dismissed by archaeologists as cattle kraals, pens for cattle, even though they might well have much deeper meanings behind their construction.

Visocica Hill a.k.a. the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun
In early March Andrew attended the Unearthing Ancient Civilizations conference in Houston, Texas, with Chris Dunn, an expert on ancient Egyptian stone technologies, and Semir "Sam" Osmanagich, the discoverer in 2005 of the so-called Bosnian Pyramids. These are a series of pyramidal hills that are being explored and promoted as artificial structures with given names such as the Pyramid of the Sun, Pyramid of the Moon, Pyramid of the Dragon and Pyramid of Love. Andrew sat in on Osmanagich's stunning visual presentation, which received a standing ovation from the packed audience. Andrew explores what is known about the Bosnian pyramids, and make some important observations about this great mystery of our times. Click here to read the full story.

the Devil You Know?
the wake of President Murbaraks departure last week, Dr Zahi Hawass
recently appointed Egypt's Minister of Antiquities is coming under considerable
fire both professionally and personally, and there is mounting support for his
resignation. Should he go or should he stay. Andrew Collins investigates, and
concludes that it might be a case of better the devil we know. To read the story
