Stonehenge-fest Thursday 23rd February, 6pm, then West Wales Dowsers on Sunday 26th February.

Thunderbirds are go! I have recently been invited to give a presentation on my work in the Preseli Hills at the first of the above events.

This first event is being held at the Memorial Hall in Newport, Pembs, which is located on the right as one leaves the village travelling on the A487 towards Fishguard. Please note that parking can be the devil’s own business there, so the Carpark down the hill may be a wise decision, travelling towards Fishguard, and before you get to the Memorial Hall, it’s on the left at the main crossroads in the town, and just a short walk gets you to the hall.

I am informed that fizzy stuff and canapes are going to be available, and I’m told by Paul Sanday, a geologist and the organiser of the event, also one of the speakers, that he wants to “get things moving on the debate about Stonehenge’s connections with the bluestone sites within the Preselis”. I wonder how much stirring of these dark and well muddied waters might he be looking for!? Usual photos, storyline and new research from me, plus question time and jolly books for sale with some humour. Could be a lot of fun.

The second event is hosted by the long standing,  successfully managed and well informed West Wales Dowsers, associated with the BSD. The venue is Bronydd Village Hall, about two or three miles from Carmarthen on the main Newcastle Emlyn road to Cardigan. The post code is SA33 6BE for all you non-dowsers. And for those who eschew the sat-nav, one turns at the sign for the steam railway,  following the road past the station, then, after about a quarter mile the village hall is on the left. The clue is that it looks just like a village hall, and is sited opposite Timberman and before the charming bridge over the river. Huge free carpark.

Doors open at 1:45 for a 2pm start. I’ll be presenting lots of stuff about my research, and my latest book, Temple in the Hills, plus a Q&A session, and you’ll also get the chance to mingle and chat with loads of nice folks into all manner of interesting aspects of the earth mystery genre. The secretary is Jennifer Forrest. Certainly better than watching an old black and white ‘B’ movie on the telly! All done by 4:30pm, in time to get home for Countryfile.

 

The Origins of Stonehenge

Small World Theatre, Cardigan presents

The Origins of Stonehenge: A fully illustrated presentation by Robin Heath

BOOKING-smallworld,org.uk      Sunday Nov 6th at 3pm until.. we’re done.        £5.00 per person

What’s all the fuss about?

Prehistoric archaeologists are currently focussing their attention on the Preseli region of West Wales. Why are they here, and what are they looking for?

The answer has to do with Stonehenge, 140 miles away in Wiltshire. Some of this mighty monument was constructed using bluestones that originated here in the Preselis. A fiery debate rages on about how they got there, whether they were taken by human toil or arrived on Salisbury Plain through glacial action.

So archaeologists are now looking for evidence of an original bluestone circle here in the Preseli hills, looking for surviving stones which, if they geologically match those at Stonehenge, will help to prove that human intent moved them there.

Robin claims to have recently discovered the original design for Stonehenge here in the Preselis, and has surveyed it using a theodolite. He will show this design has more to do with the Caer Sidi of Welsh legend, and the motions of sun, moon and stars, than it has with how a few bluestones ever found their way to Salisbury Plain. Today he fully explains why this discovery is an important milestone in the long overdue demolition of the current view concerning the capabilities of our Neolithic ancestors.

In his illustrated and not too technical presentation Robin will also reveal that Stonehenge was a derivative taken from an original design conceived here in Wales, so how good is that?! Even better is that this event coincides with the launch of Robin’s fully illustrated (colour) book on the story behind the discovery, Temple in the Hills, signed by the author, for just £9.99. And it’s getting near to Christmas!

Biography. A graduate of UCNW, Bangor, Robin Heath was previously a research and development engineer with Ferranti, then a college head of technology department, late of Coleg Ceredigion. Since 1990, local author and presenter Robin Heath has been finding the prehistoric science embedded within the surviving megalithic monuments in Britain, Ireland and France. In 1993 Robin founded Megalithic Tours and has written ten books revealing evidence of high culture to be found in the astronomy, geometry and metrology of ancient artifacts. This material has been presented to students at the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, John Ruskin College, Brasenose College, Oxford, the British School of Dowsing, The Gatekeeper Trust, RILKO (Research into Lost Knowledge Organisation), and the Royal Institute of Mathematics.

 

Discovering the Original Stonehenge in the Preselis

Prehistoric Surveying of the Landscape: The Evidence

HenllysTalk-1

An Illustrated Presentation given at Castle Henllys centre
on the 18th November 2015 at 7:30pm
by Robin Heath

What  were  megalithic  monuments  for?  

Despite  centuries  of  inquiry  by  archaeologists  and prehistorians  the  key  question  remains  unanswered.  Why  were  so   many  massive  stone  structures  erected  across  the  ancient  and  sacred  landscapes  of  the   world,  including  the  Preseli  region?

One  answer  to  this  innocent  question  lies  in  the  fact  that some  stone  circles   employ  the  same  geometrical  techniques as  do  surveyors  and  navigators.  This  fully illustrated talk shows how geometrical atterns became imprinted on the  local  and wider  landscape  of  Britain,  revealing  a  remarkable  purpose for the  megaliths,  a  purpose  based  on  the  importance  of location  ­‐‑  the  right  place.

Just  how  did  they  determine  the  right  place?  

Come along and find out, and have your present model of history recalibrated, as  we  also  discover  that  the  later  Celtic  and  Roman  Church  reapplied  the  ‘ʹpagan’ʹ  techniques  of  the  megalith  builders  to  suit  the  requirements  of  the  new   Christian  era,  ultimately  using  them  to  locate  Gothic  cathedrals.

Castell Mawr, Eglwyswrw, PembrokeshireHenllysTalk-3

HenllysTalk-2 For over thirty years, Robin Heath has looked for evidence of the science underpinning the culture of the megalithic monument builders. Over this period Robin has written ten books on ancient astronomy and geometry, and most recently has been engaged in research looking for evidence of larger geometrical patterns across the landscape, based on the location and placement of networks of ancient monuments. Previously having worked with John Michell and local antiquarian, the late John Sharkey, Robin has presented some of this material on TV documentaries, to megalithic tour groups, and also to students at the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, John Ruskin College, Brasenose College, Oxford, the British School of Dowsing and the Faculty of Astrological Studies. He lives in the Preseli National Park, in Pembrokeshire.

The Annual Robert Cowley Memorial Lecture – 24th April 2015

THE EVIDENCE FOR PREHISTORIC SURVEYING
The Annual Robert Cowley Memorial Lecture

Robin Heath Friday 24th April 2015

[The RILKO AGM will be held from 6.45 to 7.15 (Doors open 6.30pm)]
The public is warmly welcomed to the lecture at 7.30pm

Entrance: £8.00    (R.I.L.K.O. Members £6.00)

This illustrated lecture will present robust evidence that the world was surveyed and measured in prehistoric times. The technological residues from this activity will be shown to be recognisable in modern  times, and are found permeating presently employed measures, astronomical, geometrical and geodetic techniques and within prehistoric monuments, where this evidence remains almost completely unrecognised within archaeology. Find out why!

Robin Heath has a science degree and was a research and development engineer before becoming the head of technology at Coleg Ceredigion. The author of eleven books, he lectures widely on the subject of megalithic science and the evidence for ancient wisdom and has worked on projects with the media, John Michell and Paul Broadhurst, and his brother and fellow author Richard Heath.

The Research Into Lost Knowledge Organisation Public Lectures are held at
50 Gloucester Place, London W1U 8EA.

Nearest Underground Station: Baker Street
Buses: 2, 13, 30, 74, 82, 113, 139, 189, 274 pass outside.
