A qualified archaeologist, Brian Haughton is an author and researcher on the subjects of prehistoric megalithic sites, ancient sacred places and supernatural folklore. He long ago fell for the lure of the ancient world and tales of the supernatural, initially inspired by visiting the Neolithic chambered tombs of the Cotswold Hills in England and by reading the ghost stories of Sheridan Le Fanu and M.R. James.
Haughton's first book, 'Hidden History: Lost Civilizations, Secret Knowledge, and Ancient Mysteries' was published in January 2007, and has been translated into eleven languages, including German, Russian, Greek and Thai. His second book 'Haunted Spaces, Sacred Places', which concentrates on the folklore and strange tales surrounding ancient sacred sites, was published by New Page in July 2008. His third book for New Page, 'The Lore of the Ghost', was published on 15 September, 2008. 'History's Mysteries' - the long-awaited follow up to 'Hidden History', will be published in May 2009.
Brian's work has been featured in various print publications across the world including Doorways Magazine, Awareness and Ghost Voices and on web sites such as the B.B.Cs Legacies, B.B.C Birmingham, World Mysteries and the Book of Thoth. He is a member of the Folklore Society (England) and serves as a consultant for U.K-based research and investigative organization Parasearch.
