Earlier today, Philips Wells took the first steps of his wondrous 1,000 mile journey across England and Wales. He will be making this epic journey barefoot, while his latterday pilgrimage will see him visiting many of the sacred sites with which our mist-shrouded island is blessed. I’ve tried hard, but I cannot think of a […]

Temple of Artemis

by Dennis on April 20, 2014

A little while ago, I presented a partial list of some of the posts I’d like to fully compose and publish here, one of these being my thoughts on one of the secrets of the Druids, as alluded to by Sir Winston Churchill. However, in addition to these carefully thought out pieces, there are others […]

The Return of the Elgin Marbles – an Analysis of a Forlorn Hope

April 19, 2014

Since this site’s inception around ten years ago, I’ve concentrated on writing about Stonehenge, Silbury Hill and in recent years, the notion suggested by William Blake that Christ once visited Britain, but I’ve also given a great deal of thought to other subjects that I’ve never written about in public. One of these is the […]

The End is Near: Guest Post by Dan Johnston

April 15, 2014

Last night I set the alarm for 2 AM and struggled from bed to go outside in the brisk “spring” air (it was 20 degrees F or -6.7 degrees C) to view one of my favorite free sky extravaganzas — a total lunar eclipse or blood moon. Fortunately, the sky was clear and the orange/copper-colored […]

A Question of Time

April 12, 2014

A few days ago, I came across this article in the Independent, which fascinated me on account of the brusque way it dismissed the phenomenon of the Angels of Mons, a subject that’s engrossed me for years. “And what of the Angels of Mons? It has sometimes been suggested that they were a hallucination, experienced […]

Grand Canyon Petroglyphs: A Guest Post by Juris Ozols

April 2, 2014

We spent the last weekend in March on a “Getaway from Minnesota” trip to Arizona. Among other places, Marie and I visited the Grand Canyon. While there I happened to ask a park ranger whether they any “Kokopelli” rock carvings at the Grand Canyon. Kokopelli, an intriguing figure carved on rocks in numerous places in […]

Plura Latent Quam Patent

March 31, 2014

A little while ago, I wrote about how honoured I was to be asked by Philip Wells to join him on his Barefoot Billion March, one of the most inspired and imaginative undertakings I’ve ever heard of and that’s before we consider its noble aims. I was looking forward to meeting Philip at Jesus’s Well, […]

Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and North Sentinel Island

March 14, 2014

For around ten years, I’ve been writing on this site about bizarre events and coincidences of one kind or another, but the news I’ve just read in The Independent newspaper has to rank as one of the strangest of them all. As we’re all surely aware, Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went missing last Saturday in […]

The Barefoot Billion March – A Twenty-First Century Pilgrimage

March 3, 2014

Over the course of the ten years or so that I’ve been running Eternal Idol, I’ve been able to present stories such as the coming of a Giant to Stonehenge, the discovery of Bluestonehenge and others that made news the world over. I’ve been proud to announce the publication of The Missing Years of Jesus […]

Coming Events Cast Their Shadow Before: the Neolithic Plaque and the “Marcher Lord”.

February 25, 2014

The Neolithic chalk plaque, which was discovered at the Kings Barrows ridge, currently hangs in the new Visitors Centre at Stonehenge. I must admit I’ve not been along to see this plaque in its new home myself, so I cannot say how people react upon seeing it, but I would imagine that most stop for […]
