Hugh Newman's Presentation

The Giants of Stonehenge and Ancient Britain

In honour of Anthony Roberts’ Sowers of Thunder book (1978), Hugh will explore the mystery of the legendary giants of the British Isles, looking at the the founding of Britain by Brutus who defeated the giant called Gogmagog, the Fomorians and Fir Bolg of Ireland, the mighty megalith builders of England, the ‘Cawr’ giants of Wales; as well as the surprising amount of news accounts that give credence to the legends. Numerous oversized skeletons were said to have been found near Stonehenge, and over 60 other skeletons (and bones) have been reported across Britain, as well as numerous giant artefacts. Hugh will look at the archaeological evidence, decode the legends, and reveal the stories that say a thriving populations of powerful  tribes ruled ancient Albion from over 6,000 years ago, and may have been responsible for the megalithic constructions. He will also look at the power of the myths; the stories of how they could affect weather, had shaman powers and the impact that they had on civilisation. But did they really exist, or are they simply the stuff of legend?
