Many megalithic "sites" (tricky double meaning here) are springing up on the World-Wide-Web, forming a valuable new resource to those interested in the subject.

Here is a pick of my favourites. I have concentrated on three areas:

If you're looking for information or images on a particular prehistoric site try the Prehistoric Web Index.

I also have lots more Megalithic / Archaeological / "Earth Mysteries" links here.

Specialist magazines / journals

The LeyHunter Journal Now saddly defunct, but still the longest running "Earth Mysteries" magazine by quite a long stretch. Their web site is still worth a visit.

Northern Earth Online should appeal to all those with an inquiring interest in historical landscapes, folklore and custom, the unexplained, ancient consciousness and spirituality or a 'Gaian' vision of the Earth.

3rd Stone Another good read. Concentrates on Ancient Sites and new ideas in archaeology.
Now merged with At the Edge , who have kept their own huge web site of archived articles.

The Right Times Quirky and varied magazine from the Rollright Stones Trust. Recommended.

Celtic Connections Magazine Pretty self explanatory if you can get to the bottom of what Celtic means :-)
