TC Lethbridge’s claims regarding the existence of Ancient Hill Figures on Wandlebury Hill in Cambridgeshire caused significant controversy within the archaeological community, with most archaeologists believing that Lethbridge had erroneously misidentified a natural feature. Lethbridge’s methodology and theories were widely deemed unorthodox, and in…

CoB's Festival of Money is different. A whole lot different.  If a normal money conference is like karaoke, ours is more Jimi Hendrix at Monterey. First up, there's the venue. The Cockpit is a legendary fringe theatre not a bland conference…
