RILKO Conference 2018


In 2006 my old friend Chris O'Kane put me in touch with Sylvia Francke (now Sylvia Ezen) of the Research into Lost Knowledge Organisation. R.I.L.K.O. was founded in 1969 with the late Prof. Alexander Thom, the principal dedicatee of the Sighthill stone circle, as its Professor Emeritus. At Sylvia's request I updated my 1996 article for Analog on the mediaeval mystery of the Green Children of Woolpit, and the updated version was published in R.I.L.K.O. Journal in December 2006. I followed it with one on the Sighthill circle in May 2011.


Chris and I have both now been asked to speak at the R.I.L.K.O. Conference in London on Saturday October 6th. I shall be speaking on 'Radio Echoes, Green Children and a Cosmic Mystery', also explaining the archaeoastronomical connection between them. Chris will be talking on 'The Pharaoh, the Stars and a God Named Horakhti', the talk on ancient Egypt and Mars which he gave at the Astronomers of the Future Club in Troon in September 2014. Other speakers are listed on the flier attached.


The conference is a one-day event to be held at Rudolph Steiner House, 35 Park Road, London NW1 6XT. Contact details and fees are on the flier.


Linda and I are going down by coach on Friday October 5th, to spend three nights in London and come back on Monday October 8th. Full details are below and if anyone wants to come with us, for an interesting trip and event, we'd be very glad to have your company!
