Hope this e-newletter finds you well.

The Origins 2013 Conference is nearing, and below is the full programme which, as you can see, makes for a highly entertaining and enlightening weekend. Tickets are selling fast, although some are still available. Book yours now by going to the following webpage:


Once there use the PayPal button, where you can pay by Paypal, Debit Card or Credit Card.

Details of hotels nearby are also given.

The venue is just off of Baker Street, which is easily accessible on the London underground.

I am doing a radio interview on Saturday, Noveber 2nd for the show "Where Did the Road Go?" with Seriah Azkath on Gobekli Tepe and the existence of a lost civilization prior to the comet impact of 10,900 BC, and also the Watchers of Eden and Annunaki of Sumerian myth and legend. The show airs live at 11pm Eastern US time (3 GMT), and is broadcast in Upstate NY on FM radio and also online at the website. It gets uploaded to the website on the Sunday night, so people will be able to listen to it on download by the Monday morning. For the live airing, just go to the website,


... and follow the links.

Another radio interview was done recently for broadcaster Debbie West at the Illuminati Network/SERI-Worldwide. This features Gobekli Tepe, soul holes, shamanism, and Cygnus, and can be listened to at:


Both Seriah and Debbie have given me nice write ups as well, so please give both sites a look and try and listen if you can.

The interview with Seriah ends with a Fields of the Nephilim track, for those of you who know the band. Very appropriate for a talk about the Watchers and Annunaki. As to which track, you'll have to wait and see!

I did a lecture last week at the Moot With No Name in London entitled "Gobekli Tepe and the Watchers of Eden". It is a very personal journey beginning with an explanation of my strange fascination for angels, which I have had since childhood. It features Harran, Abraham, Enoch, Noah, Cainan, Seth, Watchers and the site of the Garden of Eden, all material that will appear in the second half of new book "Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods".

Anyway, you can watch it in its entirety here:


With a Q & A session afterwards available here:


And me talking about giants, Comet ISON and the origins of monotheism here:


Best wishes for now.







10.15 - Opening address from Andrew Collins

10.30 - Hugh Newman

Hugh Newman, co-founder of the Megalithomania conferences, and author of Earth Grids (2008), gives an exclusive presentation comparing the carved art and cult structures at the post-Ice Age sanctuaries of Göbekli Tepe in southeast Turkey with the stone art and megalithic complexes of lost civilizations in Peru, Bolivia, Columbia, Costa Rica and Easter Island (Rapanui). Although separated in time by many millennia, the conclusion that there is some kind of universal origin to all these cultures, linked perhaps by a universal geodetic grid and other long distance alignments, seems inescapable. Hugh reveals also the connections between these various prehistoric places and legends regarding the discovery of giant bones and elongated skulls, suggesting the existence of a lost race of human kind. It is a quest that has taken Hugh to dozens of countries over the past ten years, with many of his discoveries being inspired by strange experiences and bizarre synchronicities.

11.30 - break. Teas, coffees and light snacks available in the foyer.

11.45 - Andrew Collins

Andrew Collins, author of ground-breaking books including From the Ashes of Angels (1996), The Cygnus Mystery (2006), Beneath the Pyramids (2009) and the forthcoming Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods (Bear & Co, 2014), continues his examination of Göbekli Tepe, arguably archaeology’s most important discovery this millennium, explaining how its sanctuaries were built to align with the stars using holed standing stones. Identified as seelenloch, “soul holes”, these newly discovered pillars are the key to understanding how the Göbekli builders envisioned the transition of souls from this world to the next. It was the route to and from the sky-world for unborn souls, the newly dead and shamans adorned in the guise of the vulture. He will also reveal for the first time the builders behind Göbekli Tepe, indicating their place of origin, and showing reconstructions of how they might have looked. He reveals also why they arrived in southeast Turkey so soon after the end of the last Ice Age, and explains their relationship to the Watchers of the book of Enoch and the Annunaki gods of Sumero-Akkadian mythology.

12.45 - lunch

Steiner House has its own café, which will provide teas, coffees and light snacks throughout the day. However, in the immediately vicinity of the venue are a number of cafes, pubs and restaurants that offer a varied cuisine. Restaurants, of course, might well require reservations.

2.15 - Caroline Wise

Caroline Wise is an author, writer, priestess and book publisher. One of her greatest passions is understanding the origins of Europe's primeval goddess, known variously as Elen, St Helena, and Santa Elena. The existence of this primordial deity has revealed herself to Caroline on a quest of discovery that has led her to conclude that Elen's origin dates back to the Upper Palaeolithic, where she was connected with reindeer migratory roots in their role as the earliest trackways, and also to the pathways of shamanic flight. She was the spirit light of the land within the darkness of matter, her memory resonating down through the ages until she became a Christian saint synonymous with Helena, the mother of Constantine the Great and discoverer of the True Cross.

3.15 - break

3.30 - Robert Bauval

Robert Bauval, co-author of bestsellers such as The Orion Mystery (1994) and Keeper of Genesis (1997), will present the quest of discovery behind his latest book Imhotep the African: Architect of the Cosmos (Disinformation Books, 2013), co-written with astrophysicist Thomas Brophy. In this thought-provoking book, the authors uncover the mystery of Imhotep, the architect of the step pyramid of Djoser at Saqqara. Based on their field work at the Saqqara pyramid field, Robert re-examines astronomical alignments and other design features to uncover the true origins and genius of Imhotep, whom he concludes was African in origin. He follow clues that lead him on a fascinating magical mystery tour, beginning at Saqqara and ending in Egypt’s Libyan Desert, where they investigate the megalithic star temple of Nabta Playa, built by the earliest Neolithic ancestors of Egypt’s pharaonic race.

4.30 break

5.00 - Graham Philips

Graham Phillips, author of landmark books such as King Arthur - The True Story (1993), The Shakespeare Conspiracy (1995), Act of God (1998) and The Marian Conspiracy (2001), is a world-renowned historical writer. At Origins 2013 he reveals the incredible quest that led to his discovery that some 3,500 years ago across the world strange things suddenly began to take place. Having lived in relative peace for centuries, civilizations across the earth - in Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas - were simultaneously overwhelmed by an epidemic of mass violence. Neighbour fought neighbour and entire cultures vanished into oblivion. Around the globe humanity suddenly embraced new gods, and new religious sects independently appeared. All over the world—in China, India, Asia, and the Middle East—priests inscribed an almost identical symbol on the walls of temples, palaces and tombs: the image of an awesome manifestation that had appeared in the skies. What on earth was happening around 1500 BC? It is the story told in Graham’s book End of Eden (2007), which he presents here publicly for the first time.

6.00 – dinner

7.15 - Graham Hancock

Graham Hancock, author of such classics as Fingerprints of the Gods (1996), Supernatural (2006), and the ground-breaking novels Entangled (2009) and War God (2013), will preview the road of discovery that led to the writing of his forthcoming book Magicians of the Gods, the long awaited sequel to Fingerprints of the Gods (1995). He will show that the discovery of Göbekli Tepe in southeast Turkey is a game changer, in that’s construction between c. 9500-8000 BC suggests that we need to re-examine the age of megalithic structures worldwide from the stone temples and labyrinthine structures of Malta to the ruins of Tiahuanaco in Bolivia, the stone complexes in Incan Peru and the mountaintop temple complex of Gunung Padang in Indonesia, recently revealed as over 11,000 years old. Adding to the mystery is the existence worldwide of underwater structures that due to their depth are at least 12,000 years old and seem to be the footprint of a lost civilization destroyed at the time of a global cataclysm, which science now recognizes as a terrifying comet impact that devastated the world some 12,900 years ago.

8.45 - closing remarks
