 After visiting many Celtic sites around Europe, Gary Biltcliffe and Caroline Hoare discovered that these ancient tribes marked their territory by locating and honouring its geographical centre or ‘navel’ by either using the nearest natural feature or by constructing mounds, stone monuments, and ceremonial earthworks and re-shaping sacred hills to create a link to the cosmos.

 The positions of churches in the South Dorset landscape, when connected together by drawn lines (church symbol to church symbol on the 1:25,000 scale map of South Dorset) reveal deliberate meaningful patterns. Jonathon will be describing and analysing these patterns. The hypothesis is explored that these patterns were created in the late Roman period and that, where parish churches now stand, there were once early Christian sacred sites.

 Wimborne Minster is steeped in the most surprising history. Both ancient and modern – it seeps from the very fabric of the place – it is a town rightly described as a jewel in Dorset’s crown and likened to a near perfect cathedral city in miniature.

 His extensively illustrated presentation is based on many years of research for his book, 'The Knap of Howar and The Origins of Geometry'. The Knap of Howar is a remarkably well-preserved Neolithic 'dwelling' constructed about 3,500 BC on the remote Scottish island of Papa Westray, Orkney. Nicholas demonstrates that geometry informs the design of this 'crude' building and describes this within a symbolic context.

 The earliest tribes of Britain and Ireland marked their new kingdoms by locating and honouring its navel or mid-point, constructing mounds, stone monuments or re-shaping sacred hills to create a link to the cosmos. At these centres, we find dragon pathways aligned to the sun, crossings of trackways pointing to the cardinal directions and the worship of the Fire Goddess. Gary will share his discoveries for a forthcoming book of these centres of power at the omphalos of England, Cornwall, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
