the pioneering author returns to Ireland after 25 years to
headline a Winter Solstice Conference on Sunday the 20th December 2009.
Martin Brennan wrote The Boyne Valley Vision
The Stones of Time
, two books which
radically altered thinking about Stone Age monuments and which challenged the
widely-held academic view that Newgrange
were just tombs.
The author, who is living in Mexico where he is currently working on concluding
his next book, will headline a conference at Newgrange on Sunday, December 20th,
the eve of Winter Solstice. He will reveal fascinating new data from Mexico
relating to ancient alignments and the Mayan calendar, and will reveal the
resonance and the synchronicity between his discoveries in Mexico and those he
made in Ireland in the 1980s
The conference will be titled "The Boyne Valley Revision" in honour of his first
ground-breaking book, The Boyne Valley Vision, and will outline how the theories
he advanced over a quarter of a century ago have matured, and how new data from
other parts of the world is supporting the idea that the ancient monuments were
inspired by the Cosmos.
He will be joined at the conference, being held at the Newgrange Lodge in the
heart of the Boyne Valley, by two members of his research team who helped him
with his major discoveries - Toby Hall and Jack Roberts. Also speaking will be

publication of the book some time early in 2010.
