Folklore and Mysteries of the Isle of Portland with Gary Biltcliffe
Behind Portland’s quarrying and naval heritage is an island with a fascinating past, unique in Britain. Before the nineteenth century, the islanders had special royal privileges that allowed them to practice their own laws and customs answering only to Kings or Queens. “Their ancient oral history recalls the prehistoric peoples known as the ‘ancients’, who built many stone monuments and mounds throughout the isle and the settlement of ancient cultures from distant lands to provide trade. Is there any truth to these legends?”
Gary Biltcliffe is a writer and researcher of lost knowledge, mysteries and folklore. His spiritual travelogue of Britain began in 2009 with the publication of The Spirit of Portland and later with co-author Caroline Hoare – The Spine of Albion (2012) and The Power of Centre (2018).
In this illustrated PowerPoint presentation, Gary “will blend the myths of Portland with current history, technology and archaeology to reveal some startling revelations.”
