Here this youngster plague is not a menace. You need only someone with a representative library, full-packed with megalith, shamanic and dowsing literature, who could initiate a new discussion each week.
OK. Why shamanic and dowsing literature!? Well, I suppose it`s not enough to list and map all the megalithic objects. We should try to reconstruct the world of ideas and motives of their creators too, shouldn`t we !? Alas, there`s an evident breach between NW and Central European folklore - which is of evidently late Indoeuropean origin - and the ideas hidden behind megalithic structures. Otherwise, I would propose to introduce a Megalithic Folklore into this forum, too.
In some peripheral books, I`ve read once that people, who created megalithic monuments, were strongly motivated by shamanistic ideologies. Now, when megalithic/shamanistic communities are uprooted and vanished from most of the Earth`s surface, it seems to us that it`s only some North-Eurasian specialty. But spreading of those monuments all over the Earth maybe testifies that shamanistic ideologies marched once together over same areas!?
Why dowsing!? Well, we cannot imagine for ourselves the world of ideas of our XV c. AC ancestors, what to say about people, who vanished 4,500 years ago!? Dowsing starts from a presupposition that once people had sense sensitivity similar to this, with which
animals are still equipped today. IMHO Restoring this direct sensitivity not alienating yourself from it through minute analyzing and use of external tools, would be a path leading back to the minds of the megalith people!?
From all this, starting discussions through meaningful quotations would be most reasonable, I suppose!?
Alas, my private library is not of the kind needed. Nevertheless, I`ll try to quote something from Mircea Eliade`s books soon. Just to give an example.

I'm no longer up for the passionate arguments that apparently lots of people miss here (and into which I always let myself be drawn to my despair!), but I would love to know what anyone feels could have been the "lifestyle" of the pre-5000bce human. In particular Western Russia/Northern Scandinavia, based on what we have in the archaeological record (as opposed to our imaginations).

To take the other hand, there may be members whose posts one looks forward to reading. An, "e-mail me if 'x' posts", option would keep a person up to date on their activity. (Though like all tools, it could be used for ill as well as for good.)
As to the site losing momentum, that was posted in 2003; and whereas this is not the busiest site in the field, it loads quickly, the forum feature is a breeze to use, and there are beautiful photographs. More photos please.
