Welcome to MatteroftheOtherworld, and thanks for stopping by. Essentially this website is a comprehensive, photographic guide to the ancient stones of Cornwall. It is run by me (Sam) and is the result of many years researching the mythologies and philosophies of prehistoric nature religions, entwinned with a two-year quest (with my dog Cody) to find and photograph every prehistoric standing stone and megalithic structure throughout my beautiful home of Cornwall.

After this adventure it felt the right time to create a home for some of my photographs and information to share with like-minded folk. This website, and accompanying book, are now the results of that adventure; with the website also acting as an ongoing account of extra finds.
